Abstract / Summary

The status of writing in art practice and art-research has changed significantly in recent years. While new categories of ‘Art Writing’ and ‘Conceptual Writing’ come some way towards charting the evolving terrain, much current discourse fails to appreciate how the diverse textual practices found in current art and certain traditions of philosophy and literature imply a new interrogation of the image. Such work might be named ‘Diagrammatics’. The term is derived from the writing of Gilles Deleuze & Felix Guattari and elaborated through a reading of John Mullarkey’s Post-Continental Philosophy (2006). There are many histories of material-textual practice, many traditions of creative work in which words are used against conventions of reading and communication. Artists and art-researchers are well placed to show how the strands of these practices can be brought together as a new, extra-disciplinary work.
