Lecture: Det tegnende menneske


10.11.19 — Kl 18:00 - 19:00

Welcome to the lecture "Det tegnende menneske" by Annette Højlund! The lecture will focus on the relationship that arises between image, sensation and the human in the drawing process. The event will be held in Norwegian and is free and open to everyone to attend.

About the lecture

What kind of relationship does drawing have to the creation of new worlds and ideas? What is drawing capable of in comparison with other art forms? What do intuition and potential have to do with drawing? These are questions Anette Højlund will reflect on in her lecture, which is based on her PhD from 2012, entitled "Mind the gap! Om tegning og tilblivelse. Udkast til en tegnefilosofi".

The lecture is part of The Drawing Triennial's extended program "Før og etter streken", which opens up a broader reflection on drawing as a general expression and as a tool for understanding the world and ourselves.
