Based on the question of what a line can do, the exhibition at the Kunstraum Alexander Bürkle is dedicated to one of the liveliest, artistic means of expression of the last decades - drawing! Based on the holdings of the Ege Kunst- & Kulturstiftung, it shows how the medium dissolves from the obligation to imitate and appears as an autonomous and thus self-referential genre, in which both conceptual and material boundaries are blasted.
