Item Type: Exhibition
Creators: Luzar, R
Abstract: This set of Traced Papers specifically uses The Leuchter Report. According to the Auschwitz-Birkenau State Museum ‘[The] facts make it clear that the “Leuchter Report,” allegedly a watershed in understanding Auschwitz, is in fact nothing more than an attempt, concealed beneath an academic-looking smokescreen of graphs, analyses, and calculations, at misinforming readers who have no access to the scholarly literature—or who are looking for precisely the sort of conclusions that Leuchter offers.’

This exhibition, curated by the UWE BCU Drawing Research Group, served as an introduction and testament to the evolving significance of drawing as a cross-disciplinary tool for research, communication and ideation. It aimed to challenge established perceptions of Drawing while emphasising its role in fostering innovation, visual thinking and knowledge advancement.

It accompanied a symposium of the same name where the drawing research community investigated the question "What is drawing research in 2023?".
