Leerstellen graphischer Künste – Funktion, Ästhetik und Bedeutung des nicht bezeichneten Raumes

"Blank Spaces of the Graphic Arts - Function, aesthetics and meaning of the undesignated space"

The aim of the early modern workshop is to pursue the unsigned body in its various expressions and functions as an active image-determining element. The contributions of the workshop are based on fundamental questions concerning concrete physical properties of the blank paper, semantic as well as image-theoretical differentiations of the phenomenon of the void depending on the technique and subject of the work. In doing so, the gaze focuses, among other things, on the brightness and darkness of the material nothing, as well as on atmospheric landscape spaces as open places of potential, metaphysical and artistic reflections. Furthermore, it is examined how and with what aesthetic implications in the print graphic an exemption of the figure may be due to different motivations or which gaps art-historical contemplation itself produces. Another focus of the event is the relationship between image and text (omission).
