Objects yet to Become: Nikolaus Gansterer in conversation with Claire Scanlon Claire Scanlon, Independent researcher, UK; Nikolaus Gansterer University of Applied Arts, Vienna, Austria JOURNAL OF VISUAL ART PRACTICE 2021, VOL. 20, NO. 3, 197–214 https://doi.org/10.1080/14702029.2021.1951583 ABSTRACT This article takes the form of an email dialogue between the artist Nikolaus Gansterer and Claire Scanlon – guest-editor of the special issue journal ‘Demands of the Diagram’, in which this article features. The conversation is motivated by five of the most recent Objects yet to Become in Gansterer’s ongoing series of hand-drawn image-text provocations. In the exchange, Scanlon takes up the challenge set by each Objects yet to Become in turn, thereby situating in practice a broader discussion of the diagrammatic as ‘an experimental system of notation and reflection’ in Gansterer’s wider oeuvre. The conversation is punctuated by five, full-page illustrations of each of the chalk- on-blackboard Objects yet to Become, reproduced for the reader from their give-away postcard format.
