Auto fictions: Contemporary Drawings
The prize represents an exciting cross-section of current international trends in the field of contemporary drawing. A tendency in the direction of the figurative, the narrative, and even the fantastic is evident in the works of the 33 artists at the heart of the presentation in the Wilhelm-Hack-Museum.
Interestingly, contemporary artists in the age of digitalisation and social media are increasingly focused again on drawing. This is perhaps a coincidence considering that the medium is generally regarded as the most direct form of artistic expression. With its intimate appeal, the gestures of drawing exert a fascination that appears more relevant than ever.
The exhibition features works by artists such as Charles Avery, Ulla von Brandenburg, Marcel Dzama, Jana Gunstheimer, Susan Hefuna, Tomasz Kowalski, Ciprian Muresan, Pavel Pepperstein, Catharina van Eetvelde and Jorinde Voigt.
