MATE – Museo Mario Testino presents Draftsmen’s Congress, the work initiated by Polish born, Warsaw based artist Pawel Althamer. The work sees MATE’s Temporary Exhibition Space converted into an empty, blank white room which transforms through the gradual accumulation of drawings and paintings by visitors to the museum. Visitors are invited to leave their own personal mark on surfaces in the room using materials provided by the museum, creating an ever changing interactive installation over a three month period. During the project, the artist’s aim is to connect the different groups of people and create an environment that promotes empathy and interpersonal exchange, combining the visual experience with socially suggestive messages. It is this approach that places Althamer at the forefront of current developments in contemporary art. Draftsmen’s Congress was first presented at the 7th Berlin
