Nikolaus Gansterer, Thinking Drawing Diagram, chalk on blackboard, 2011

Exhibition ) ( ) DRAWING AS THINKING IN ACTION 

March 22nd – June 15th 

Artist: Nikolaus Gansterer

Curator: Jeanette Pacher

In his artistic and performative practice, Nikolaus Gansterer applies an expanded and open notion of drawing based on his understanding of thinking and drawing being analogous processes. He is thus concerned with the fundamental question of how to translate and visualise thought processes, both conscious and subconscious. Presenting several new and on-site works next to existing ones, Gansterer’s innovative methods such as ad hoc notations, self-reporting, or space-body diagrams are explored and together cast a fresh light on drawing, namely as a tool for thinking in action.

The Projective Drawing

From the 28th of June to the 20th of September

Collective exhibition

Curator: Brett Littman

The Drawing Lab Paris invites Brett Littman, Director of the Isamu Noguchi Foundation and Garden Museum and former Director of the Drawing Center in New York, to redevelop the collective exhibition The Projective Drawing, which was on-view at the Austrian Cultural Forum from February to May 2018.

Inspired by Robin Evans’ book The Projective Cast, published in 1995, the exhibition explores the same theory: a new way of “seeing” architecture that challenges our understanding of how drawing techniques work in contemporary culture. The works on display invite visitors to contemplate the essentially partial and unfinished nature of the drawing.
