Idioglossia is a glossary of texts and terms generated in and around the Goldsmiths Art Writing MFA seminars at the Whitechapel Gallery in 2011/2012.
Enjoying the perverse function essential to every glossary, this book presents words, names, references and concepts in a way that disavows, reconfigures, contradicts or makes more complex their general and original use. It is the outcome of a series of workshops hosted by the students of the Art Writing MFA from Goldsmiths, University of London, using the
11 Statements written by Maria Fusco, Yve Lomax, Michael Newman and Adrian Rifkin (as published in Frieze and Fillip Journal) as a point of departure.
The material of the book was generated through presentations and discussions between students, professors and general members of the public.
