Taking a journey with a pencil, thinking with your hand, capturing the perspective of a sculptural form in a few strokes and
lines — the art of drawing is not only one of the earliest, but also the most inventive playing fields within the fine arts.
Five artists – Linda Bilda, Sevda Chkoutova, Nikolaus Gansterer, Moussa Kone and Hoa Luo – show samples of their work and
participate in a studio talk on which role drawing does play within their artistic process. How do current media frameworks
change the search for subjects? Which influence do printing techniques such as print on demand, risography, or digital print
have on artistic production in the field of drawing? And what is the strategic role of publishing and distributing on paper?
Within the framework of the exhibition “Drawing from the Future” (1 March 1 - 31 May, 2017) at the Salon für Kunstbuch at
the 21er Haus - Museum of Contemporary Art Vienna, Austria, several events take place where publishers, distributors and artists
present their productions and negotiate the current complex relations between drawing and the medium of the book. Invited
by Bernhard Cella.
