Diagrammatic Entanglements

In collaboration with artist Nikolaus Gansterer, commissioned by Arts Cabinet

In their contribution to Ways into Knowing, artist Nikolaus Gansterer and curator, writer Fatoş Üstek engage in a conversation on employing diagramming as an artistic method focussing on the trilogy of works that punctuate Gansterer’s practice spanning the last decade. Together, they investigate the expansive force of diagrammes in instigating relational networks amongst seemingly disparate areas of knowledge formation, and how this investigation manifests itself as artistic modes of production.

During their exchange, Ustek produces three cumulative diagrammes as a spontaneous response to Gansterer’s three works: Drawing a Hypothesis – Figures of Thought, 2011, Choreo-graphic Figures: Deviations from the Line 2014-19 and Contingent Agencies, 2019-23.

These three diagrams are produced with the aid of a carbon paper that bleeds the markings onto the successive pages, which are dedicated to each work in respect of their historical order.

The conversation is presented on a full transcript and a 3-parts film. READ/ WAtCH HERE.
