Drawing Lesson was conceived of as a performative act as well as a questioning tool for use in educational session at the Documenta 12 exhibition in Kassel, Germany, 2007. The Drawing Lesson locates intervention within a pedagogical context and responds to the artist’s Peter Friedl open invitation to invent a story that will take on new meaning. In an effort to study institutional hegemony as well as the exhibition’s educational ambitions, the Drawing Lesson employs a notion of conflict as a performative strategy as well as a methodological tool.
