The Symposium Drawing Conclusions preceded the opening of the Call For Drawings exhibition. It was held on June 24 at BAK, Utrecht. This project selected drawings from artists, scientists and other professionals for an interdisciplinary research project investigating the role of visual thinking and the role of visualizations in cognitive and creative processes.
The symposium focused on the meaning of drawings for various forms of knowledge production. How do drawings relate to visual thinking? What role do they play in creative and cognitive processes? And what is the significance of drawings when solving problems and communicating possible solutions?
Opening address by project initiator and MaHKU core-tutor Klaas Hoek and BAK director Maria Hlavajova.
