THE DIAGRAM: BLACKBOARD SERIES
1st September - 15th October 2011.
The diagram talks held at Banner Repeater utilise the framework of the diagram to consider both aesthetic and pedagogical concerns in art, as well as broader concerns relating to how we find ourselves in the world today.

The blackboard series is a contributive and sequential series of diagrams, drawn onto the blackboard, in the working environment of the reception area at SPACE (studios and gallery). Reflecting on the focus of the diagram over the last year at Banner Repeater, in its environment of a working station, and acting a little, perhaps, as a rear-view mirror, to move forwards.
A number of people who have engaged with the diagram over the last year at BR have been asked to contribute a diagram for the blackboard. The series is ephemeral in nature, being drawn in chalk, and there may be some consideration about how each contribution relates to the others, and how much of a palimpsest does this present.
With contributions from:
FOLIO: Dial Zero
12th Istanbul Biennale.
The diagram blackboard series will be hosted by FOLIO magazine, co-edited by Merve Kaptan, and Charlie Coffey. FOLIO seeks to operate as an exhibition space on paper, presenting the work of 4 or 5 artists per issue.
The series of diagrams, as they are drawn at SPACE will be translated by Merve Kaptan, drawing them on the remote blackboard, sited at Torna (working late workshop, project space and bookshop) in Istanbul.
This will run through September until October, and on the 21st to the 25th September FOLIO are involved in the Dial Zero event, where they will be presenting the diagram blackboard series, during the 12th Istanbul Biennale.
