Saussure workshop

via Ludovisi, 48


How can we think about the radically arbitrary nature of the linguistic sign and difference through drawing? A workshop to draw acoustic images, to think about difference and differential relationships, languages, the signifier and the signified, through drawing. An experience to grasp what philosophical thought, on its own, cannot capture, where drawing shows us a snapshot of change, thought no longer separated from gesture, word no longer separated from image.

Drawings realized around the Saussure Workshop – May 16th 2013, Istituto Svizzero di Roma
