“Technologies of Drawing”
Huddersfield, Great Britain
2. – 28 August 2011
In cooperation with the University of Huddersfield
The University of Huddersfield and the European organisation “sculpture network” selected 15 artists to work in university studios for four days, with an aim to enquire about and represent the idea of drawing across a range of materials, methods and technologies, going beyond the on-going debated opposition between hand-made and digital. This included observational drawing, digital media, architectural drawing, sculptor’s preparatory drawing, etc.
Technical staff at the University provided support and the group of artists was joined by Deborah Harty a researcher from Loughborough University, editor of the drawing research journal TRACEY.
After the 4-day workshop, a conference took place in the university. Seven international referees illustrated the theme from different points of view.For detailed information click here

“I liked the atmosphere of concentrated working. I felt like ungrounded when I started to experiment with the (for me) new area – digital arts – but it has opened new possibilities to me and I’m totally curious what kind of work will come out with this new tool! I’ve just bought the program to continue the process.”Eva Moosbrugger, Austria
“For me it was a great pleasure and a great experience to be with you. For work as well for fun.” – Marc Reist, Switzerland
“For me it seemed like beeing on an island,15 artists who did not know each other before spending a week together. One of the best moments for me were the hours of quiet working together.And in the end to see the variety and complexity of the works which were formed in only 4 days.” – Bettina Lüdicke, Germany
