Graphology: drawing from automatism and automation | Edwin Carels (ed.)
Drawing Room

Graphology: drawing from automatism and automation explores questions about medium-specificity through the combination of works from very different eras and created by various technologies. The featured artworks and essays investigate the human hand as a living seismograph of inner life, yet concurrently address the ‘mechanical unconscious of the machine’ which imposes itself on the human eye. It reaches back to the beginning of the 20th century and includes artists who translate human agency into different forms of systematised representation, between the trace and the sign, between writing and drawing, between automatism and automation.
