In the exhibition “Out Of My Hands” new representations of drawing will be shown in which technology or new media play an important role. The drawing relates to another discipline (or the other way around) and technology is applied to accomplish a transformation. A physical or performative element is often part of the work. A different aesthetic experience is being searched for. Within the width of variations in this way of approaching SIGN wants to contribute to the debate what defines drawing.
