// about the exhibtion:
How are our judgements about art affected by our knowledge of the artist’s name and background? How is the value of a drawing determined? Where is the border between art and non-art?

The ANONYMOUS DRAWINGS 2018 exhibition features 600 drawings by 600 anonymous international artists presented with no mention of authorship or title and offered for sale at a symbolic price of € 200. The identity of the artist is revealed only after the work is sold. The project began with an international open call for drawing submissions. No guidelines were given specifying content; the only requirement was that the drawings be no bigger than A3. The background, age, or gender of participants played no role in the final selection of works. From over 2000 drawings submitted, the final 600 were selected by Berlin artist and project founder Anke Becker in cooperation with artist duo Reinert/Hinsberg to create a collective art piece.

ANONYMOUS DRAWINGS is both conceptual art and exhibition project in one where individual works from everyone involved become part of a larger wall installation in which hierarchies are entirely absent.

THE SALIENT POINT: FILM SCREENING
with Bettina Munk
/ Lines Fiction
Making pixelpoints move has become easy with software. Why then, would artists still opt for the hard road by using analogue materials and frame-by-frame techniques in their animation? In a lecture and film screening, Bettina Munk presents the latest developments in animated film with roots in traditional animation forms. Artists: Blu, Aline Helmcke, Miodrag Manojlovic, Regina Pessoa, Marco Raparelli, Georges Schwizgebel and others

CHORAL PERFORMANCE and text-edition DRAWINGS OF AN EXHIBITION

Artists participating in the exhibition anonymously created a brief description of one of the works. Exact, associative, lyric, meandering, concise. A libretto was created from the results and will be presented as a CHORAL PERFORMANCE by SINGKOMPANIE MAYRÖCKER.

The text-edition DRAWINGS OF AN EXHIBITION is a collaboration by artists represented at ANONYME ZEICHNER 2018. Each has described a randomly selected piece from one artist represented in the exhibition. There were no requirements regarding choice of form or language, and all text has been printed in its original language.  It is up to the users of the 390-page tear-off pad to assign the descriptions to the drawings shown in the exhibition, to fill the pages with their own drawings, or simply to enjoy the individual texts and their poetic quality - beyond the respective visual source.

390 pages, limited to 130 copies and numbered. 25€ special price in the gallery during the exhibition
until September 19 (afterwards: 35€, online)
