"Personal Plans: Twelve Current Positions in the Genre of Drawing"
2002-03-23 until 2002-05-12
Kunsthalle Basel
Basel, , CH

The medium of drawing assumes on the one hand a special role as the site of the prima idea. This group exhibition presents twelve current positions in the grenre of drawing.

Works included are by: Rita Ackermann (born 1968, Budapest/New York), Anna Ammadio (born 1963, Basel), Edgar Arceneaux (born 1972, Los Angeles), Thomas Baumann (born 1967, Vienna), Annelise Coste (born 1973, France/Zurich), and Andro Wekua (born 1977, Georgia/Zurich), Russell Crotty (born 1956, Los Angeles), Karim Noureldin (born 1967, Basel), Daniel Roth (born 1969, Karlsruhe), Yehudit Sasportas (born 1969, Tel Aviv/New York), Silke Schatz (born 1967, Cologne), Frances Stark (born 1967, Los Angeles).

The exhibits range from small sheets, to installation-like presentation forms, to works applied directly to the wall. The lines lead from private life plans revealed in diary-like notes, to drafts of worlds which, though supposedly rational, are also subjective montages in space. The exhibition embraces the apparently absent-minded scribble, the well-thought through line, and moments akin to a performance or adapted to a specific room.

Drawings are plans, and plans project, open up, invent spaces. Is there any limit to what a plan can be- The exhibition includes plans of architectonic, temporal, psychological, literary and sociology.

Generously supported by Jungbunzlauer
