Printed Matter: Anushka Rajendran

Anushka Rajendran’s Airing out the Archive: A Take on Art explored annotation and marginalia via some recent issues of TAKE on Art magazine, and in doing so reiterated some of the themes that had emerged throughout the earlier Art History and Storytelling session. Rajendran observed a correlation between annotation and metadata, noting that reading is a collective act informed by a gradual accumulation of margin notes or google searches. She also considered the photocopy in this context, noting the ‘quiet act of resistance’ involved in its creation, and, in another nod to corporeality, characterising annotation as a form of gradual scarification.
