Kupferstichkabinett: Between Thought and Action




The word ‘Kupferstichkabinett’ comes from the German expression meaning a  museum’s unique collection of prints and drawings.

‘Kupferstichkabinett: Between Thought and Action’ looks at role of drawing in current practice. Kupferstichkabinett has more than two hundred works on paper by a selection of the most important artists working today.

This selection of drawings and prints traces a range of subjects, including: ‘Ideas Generation’, where artists use the immediacy of drawing as a means to prepare and refine a concept; ‘Systems, Architectonics and Abstraction’, in which predetermined rules, structures and methods govern the form of the image; ‘Expressions of Anatomy’, where intimate portrayals of the figure assume a central position; ‘Graphic Narratives / Surreal Legacies’, featuring imagery from the fantastically bizarre to the comically illustrative; and ‘Historia’, which examines how drawing has been used to question the role of photography in the mediation and construction of historical memory.

Artists:

Anselm Kiefer, Antony Gormley, Bruce Nauman, Damien Hirst, Gabriel Orozco, Gary Hume, Georg Baselitz, Jake & Dinos Chapman, Julie Mehretu, Luc Tuymans, Lucian Freud, Miroslaw Balka, Mona Hatoum, Rachel Whiteread, Raqib Shaw, Tracey Emin
