Lines of Deterritorialization: The Becoming-Minor of Carter's Drawing
Schulte, Christopher M.
Studies in Art Education: A Journal of Issues and Research in Art Education, v56 n2 p142-155 Win 2015
Invoking Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari's configuration of minor literature, the author of this case study theorizes the drawing practice of a young boy (Carter) as a process of becoming-minor. Critical to this theorization is the creation and activation of a semblance between Brent and Marjorie Wilson's (1977) treatment of the convention-acquiring process and Deleuze and Guattari's (1975/1986) conceptual usage of re- and de-territorialization. Through this semblance, the author extends and further complicates an already complex conversation about language and language usage in children's drawing. In particular, the author explores the scene of complexity in and through which Carter, when drawing, goes about consuming, appropriating, producing, and performing the conventions and materialities of his drawing languages.
