The More I Draw - e-flux

Dan Perjovschi, "I draw," 2010.

Gegenwartskunst Siegen

The More I Draw –
Drawing as a Concept for the World
5 September 2010 – 13 February 2011

Museum für Gegenwartskunst Siegen
Unteres Schloss 1
57072 Siegen


On over 1,400 m² space our overview exhibition The More I Draw in the Museum of Contemporary Art Siegen highlights the tendencies in contemporary art drawing since the 1960s, focusing on the serial, narrative, descriptive, and mythologizing forms.

The exhibition showcases 41 international artists and aims at revealing the definitive role drawing plays in modern art, a role that was conceived by Conceptual Art, which discovered drawing as an original art medium and to a large extent helped to revaluate it through its conceptual traits.

Well-known artists' approaches are shown in an historical retrospective, such as by Joseph Beuys, Frédéric Bruly Bouabré or Cy Twombly, but also other important illustrators of the following generation, for example Anna Oppermann or Tomas Schmit, among others. A focal point of the exhibition is the actual practice of drawing, visualized by extensive groupings of works and drawing installations by contemporary artists such as Jorinde Voigt, Dan Perjovschi, or Alexander Roob, artists who have expanded drawing as an art form experimentally and through performance.

The artists of the exhibition (in chronological order):
Joseph Beuys, Frédéric Bruly Bouabré, Cy Twombly, Gerhard Rühm, André Thomkins, Stanley Brouwn, Anna Oppermann, Hanne Darboven, Katharina Meldner, Tomas Schmit, Barbara Camilla Tucholski, Heinz Emigholz, Anne-Mie van Kerckhoven, Nanne Meyer, Peter Radelfinger, Silvia Bächli, Harald Falkenhagen, Joseph Grigely, Alexander Roob, Raymond Pettibon, Nedko Solakov, Mark Lammert, Dan Perjovschi, Johnny Miller, Dorothea Schulz, Tracey Emin, Claude Heath, Pia Linz, Hannes Kater, Pavel Pepperstein, Sandra Vásquez de la Horra, David Shrigley, Chloë Piene, Ryõko Aoki, Christelle Franc, Katrin Ströbel, Ralf Ziervogel, Constantin Luser, Dasha Shishkin, Jorinde Voigt and Mariusz Tarkawian.

An extensive catalogue is available. The catalogue includes an introductory essay by Eva Schmidt and an article by Michel Sauer, next to expositions on the artists and a commentated index by Jan-Philipp Fruehsorge on exhibitions, blogs, publications, etc. that are dedicated to drawing as a medium. Publisher: DuMont Buchverlag, Cologne.

The exhibition and the accompanying program have been supported generously by:
The Governor of the State of NRW, the NRW Art Foundation, the Federal Art Foundation, Pro Helvetia, the Swiss Art Foundation, the Sparkasse Siegen, and the Museum's Circle of Friends. The Museum of Contemporary Art Siegen is a culture partner of the WDR.
