Marginale Zeichentechniken als ästhetische Strategie in der frühen Neuzeit

"Marginal drawing techniques as an aesthetic strategy in the early modern period"

This conference puts for the first time into context the rather incidentally appearing drawing techniques such as tracing, contre-proofing as well as cut-and-paste-procedures, which were notwithstanding elementary components for notable artists in the processes of brainstorming and designing. Extensive questions after differenciated functions of such motoric, experienced and mechanical drawing modes and of their creative achievement in the everyday workshop business promise so far neglected knowledge of the production of art itself, but also about its reception. Though the drawing process (as form of poiesis) can be reflected in terms of its inner rigour and furthermore the hitherto „platonically“ informed writing of art history can be enriched with an as yet displaced, but alike fundamental perspective.
