The inter-symposium "Along Lines" – a hybrid of conference and exhibition – brings together around 40 artists, musicians,
philosophers, scientists, archaeologists and other researchers to reflect on the line as a very basic visual element and medium
of knowledge. Taking it as a symbolic as well as analytical instrument the symposium at Nida Art Colony of the Vilnius Academy
of Arts, in Lithuania presents different strategies to sketch and connect through methods of mapping, walking, recording etc.
Nikolaus Gansterer will give a practical introduction to his practices of line- and trace-making and present two new publications:
Choreo-graphic Figures: Deviations from the Line aswell as the brand new second edition of his Drawing a Hypothesis – Figures
