A publication project by Nikolaus Gansterer.
Drawing a Hypothesis is an exciting reader on the ontology of forms of visualisation and on the development of the diagrammatic
perspective and its use in contemporary art, science and theory. In an intense process of exchange with artists and scientists,
Nikolaus Gansterer reveals drawing figures as a media of research which enables the emergence of new narratives and ideas
by tracing the speculative potential of diagrams. Based on a discursive analysis of found figures with the artist’s own diagrammatic
maps and models, the invited authors create unique correlations between thinking and drawing. The book is a rich compendium
of figures of thought, which moves from scientific representation through artistic interpretation and vice versa.
