Beyond the Line – Johannesburg

In February/March 2008 Natasha Christopher and Karel Nel (Wits School of Arts in Johannesburg, South Africa) together with Katrin von Maltzahn ran the project “Beyond the line” with students from Wits School's Division of Visual Arts in Johannesburg. The project explored contemporary and historical dimensions of “drawing” in South Africa. It consisted of a seminar, a lecture series and different exhibitions at Johannesburg Art Gallery, the Goethe Institut Johannesburg and Substation Gallery.

The catalogue documents the project and the exhibition. It contains texts by Khwezi Gule and Nessa Leibhammer (both Johannesburg Art Gallery), Natasha Christopher, Karel Nel and Katrin von Maltzahn, about 60 historical and contemporary drawings from the Art Gallery’s collection, special contributions by the South African artists William Kentridge, Maja & Gerhard Marx and works by the participating students.
