AboutBarnet's response to The Müleskinders, makes diagrammatic connections apparent with readings and performative excerpts in response to the works held loosely unbound in the prototype publication, developed over her six week residency. All are very welcome to join us.
The Müleskinders:A Prototype Publication is an inquiry into preparation and its diagrammatics. An ecology of process in creative work relies on certain animating and vitalising elements, the contingency of which makes them notoriously difficult to locate. But to think of the elements as diagrams, it is proposed, offers a new and helpful perspective. Müleskinders: Prototype Publication draws on a larger project (The Müleskinders) in which a number of artists and writers have been invited to respond to photographic images of obscure origin, to demonstrate how textual material emerges from the visual and vice versa. Prototype Publication stills the Müleskinders project in development, providing the material to be re-organised, to be opened to the influences of other work, and thus to delegate and extend the diagramming beyond the project's established parameters.
