     Words in and out of Order


I wish to contribute an introduction to the material we handle when we write and what it is constituted of. Our pleasures, problems or prejudices about writing may be very different from one another; the tools, rules, forms and language-games (Wittgenstein) are not. This common ground and its source for sovereign play with language in – so-called ‘creative’ and applied – forms of writing I wish to bring forward. By means of conclusion, I will present a particular mode of publication format that can serve as a practicable and productive model for writing in the context of art production and artistic research.
