800 international drawings
curated by Anke Becker
exhibition: March 24 – April 20, 2013
opening reception: Saturday 23 / 7 pm
What is the line between what is and is not art? What is a good drawing? How does one’s own assessment change if there is no information at all about the artist? With Anonymous Drawings the common rules of the art-market are reversed in an experimental way turned upside down. Anonymous Drawings was founded 2006 by the artist Anke Becker in Berlin, Germany. Since then, more than 8000 artists from all over the world have taken part in the project and more than ten shows of Anonymous Drawings took place in Berlin and abroad up until today.
The exhibition was preceded by an open call for participation on the internet. 800 works have been selected for the exhibition. The age, biography or gender of the participants did not play any role in the selection: the selection has been made anonymously, without looking at the artists’ names. The only formal rule: the maximum size of the exhibited drawings is 30 by 42 cm (A3). The artist’s anonymity can only be revealed by a sale: All exhibited drawings are available for a symbolic unit sales-price of 150 Euros each.
With Anonymous Drawing many single pieces of art become one “Gesamtkunstwerk”: Each and every anonymous artist becomes part of a huge installation where hierarchies do not exist. Anonymous Drawings is an action against separation, competition and monoculture within the art-market and a tribute to the inexhaustible medium of drawing.
Sale of drawings for a unit sales price of 150 Euro each at the gallery and online: www.anonyme-zeichner.de
A catalog is published along with the exhibition: color print, 102 pages, German/English, 19,50€ – with an essay by Daniela Droescher.

Peer Critique Sessions at “the Attic”
On January 10, 2013, the first Peer Critique Sessions with Eindhoven artists and other art-professionals will start. These sessions are an initiative by artist Jeroen Offerman. I will join these Peer Critic Sessions, and will present my project City Parts on march 21st.
You can find more information about the different sessions on this blog:
This new project by BETONROT is conceived as a traveling exhibition/chain letter between artists. BETONROT (Ludwig De Wolf, Jo De Smedt and Lander Loeckx) has sent three different works to three different artists. These artists are asked to add their work and send the complete package to another artist of their choice, and so on…The project will run until the end of 2012 and culminates in an exhibition of all the added works in 2013. The website will be regularly updated with reproductions of the added works.
