Dan Perjovschi: The Hard Drawing

Dortmunder U | on all floors | 08/27/2016 - 08/27/2017

For its twentieth anniversary, the HMKV re-invited the Romanian artist Dan Perjovschi who already participated in HMKV's exhibition "new ideas – old tricks" in 2001. Back then, a fax machine was installed in the exhibition space. On a daily basis, the artist sent drawings via the fax machine - one of them addressing HMKV itself („verein with no webpage“).

In his spontaneous yet highly stylized drawings, Dan Perjovschi takes a critical and often ironic look at pressing social issues. His artistic strategy could be described as the temporary occupation of institutional spaces with political illustrations and critical comments. His work generally extends beyond the opening of the show, as he continually expands and “grows” his drawings in the course of a one or two week long process in which visitors are encouraged to take part. Due to the nature of his work, Perjovschi’s exhibitions are essentially unpredictable, but they always offer a fascinating mirror of contemporary society.

From Saturday, 27 August until Sunday, 4 Sep 2016 the internationally renowned Romanian artist Dan Perjovschi will be working in the giant vertical space of the Dortmunder U. For one entire week, he will be drawing his commentaries on global political events – directly on the walls. Come by and witness the creation of a unique artwork! The drawings Perjovschi will create on the levels 0-6 – entitled „The Hard Drawing“ – will be on view until the end of August 2017.
Dan Perjovschi will be working during the usual opening hours of the Dortmunder U: Tue-Sun 11 am – 6 pm, any maybe also Thu+Fri until 8 pm.
