‘As a child, everyone is an artist. The difficulty is remaining one as an adult.’ (Pablo Picasso)

In this statement, Picasso hints at the fascination that children’s drawings exerted not just on him, but countless other artists of his generation, such as Münter, Kandinsky, Klee, Kokoschka, Miró, and Chagall to name but a few: the freedom and lack of pretension with which children capture their world on paper. In the exhibition PAPERWORLDS, curators Valeska Hageney and Sylvia Volz present over 60 childhood drawings made by living artists who are now international figures in the art world. PAPERWORLDS goes on show at me Collectors Room from 21 January 2014 and features work by nineteen contemporary artists, including: Norbert Bisky, John Bock, Andy Hope 1930, Jonathan Meese, Tal R, Katja Strunz, Rosemarie Trockel, and Thomas Zipp. They provide us with a rare, private glimpse of drawings they created between the ages of three and fourteen.

 

“Quando criança, todo mundo é artista. A dificuldade é permanecer um quando adulto.” (Pablo Picasso)

Nesta declaração, Picasso aponta para o fascínio com que os desenhos de crianças exerceram não apenas sobre ele, mas a inúmeros outros artistas de sua geração, como Münter, Kandinsky, Klee, Kokoschka, Miró e Chagall para citar apenas alguns: a liberdade e a falta de pretensão com que as crianças capturam seu mundo em papel. Na mostra PAPERWORLDS, os curadores Valeska Hageney e Sylvia Volz apresentam mais de 60 desenhos de infância feitos por artistas vivos e que agora são figuras internacionais no mundo da arte. PAPERWORLDS fica em cartaz no me Collectors Room à partir de 21 de janeiro de 2014 e apresenta trabalhos de dezenove artistas contemporâneos, incluindo: Norbert Bisky, John Bock, Andy Hope 1930, Jonathan Meese, Tal R, Katja Strunz, Rosemarie Trockel e Thomas Zipp. Eles nos dão um vislumbre raro e íntimo de desenhos que criaram entre três e quatorze anos.
