Iris Brahms: Fantasies in the Margin

The linear correlation between drawing and writing intensifies in sketches or notations in the margin of a page. In a defined area within the organization of a page the sketches cautiously create a dimension of space; they rather interrupt the eternity of the paper by not more than possibly beginning or suggesting a spatial relation. In the seminar it will be asked for the various strategies of stimulating the artist's fantasy such as iteration, mirroring, documentation on one side, rhythm, sequence or cesure of the line on the other. The status of temporal transition – the "not-yet", "not-anymore" or "just-still" – will be stressed as potentiality for the artist's imagination serving a reciprocal relationship from a necessary distance to leave the freedom for reflection and anticipation of new knowledge.
