Darko Vukić (RS) Diagraming events over empty horizon

Key words: Diagram, Diagrammatic, Art, Theory, Practice, Event, Twist

This workshop is discussion oriented and material induced. First part is thought as presentation of content that will unlock pathways of possible orientation and navigation throughout. Accompanied by interlocution which will gradually include participants and foster their entanglement and variable involvement. Next stage deals with a construction of a collective diagram from inputs, linking the contents and ramifying it into different possible/applicable ways, into a transformable conduct structure that could change upon individual/collective apprehension and contribution to its development. The course will open the spectrum of diagrammatic arrays, fields of its applicability. From basic organizational ground level, through art, fiction, psychoanalytical, speculative, improvisational and musically implied schematic procedures of diagraming an event.

The focus will be mostly on art and research related diagrammatic practice/experiment as also on mental processes and diagram representations of a twist. Materials for introducing and practicing throughout will include video, imagery and portions of text. Also, considering the relation of the manual-technical character of diagrams, drawing could be expected/possible, either by hand or by any device.
