Creating Draft Agreement Intervention – Activity

While undertaking research for my project I have been gathering material on the negotiations taking place in Brussels on the EU Withdrawal Agreement. As an experiment I decided that similar to other artists who have taken existing publications and modified them by removing pages or inserting new images into the publication. <Reference photographers who have modified books such as Richard Prince> I decided to see how that might work in the case of my images with the EU Withdrawal Agreement.

The current agreement document is 138 pages of text with gaps at the end of different articles within the document. I decided to insert images into the white space within the document. The broad concept was that people do not expect to see images within legal documents however the agreement document that will define the role of the border and the flow of people and goods across across that transitional space. An initial version of the intervention was prepared to share alongside the book dummy during the Group Critique with Victoria Forrest. The resulting work was converted into a PDF so that it could be shared with the Group.
