How bodies move through space?
Drawing, human images and movement with Katie Lee Dunbar

The early themes of the Brücke artists included depictions of people, in motion or as nudes. “Quarter-hour nudes”, as they called the rapid drawing exercises, were primarily concerned with capturing a model within a short time with quickly placed strokes and lines. This immediacy became one of the most important foundations of Expressionism. Katie Lee Dunbar, as a contemporary performer and visual artist, takes up these themes with them from a contemporary artistic perspective. The forest space and surrounding garden provide space to take up the historical themes of the Brücke artists’ group and to explore them artistically (through drawing and performance).

Katie Lee Dunbar (UK) is a femme, queer feminist performer and visual artist based in Berlin. Their research focuses on voice, memory, movement, sound, language and installation.
