This article is an engagement with Deleuzeguattarian theories as a way to explore the possibilities of a "politics-to-come" and what that might mean for education. To mobilize our thinking through deleuzeguattarian concepts, we inhabit contemporary artworks by Toronto-based artist Diane Borsato. Our interest in deleuzeguattarian encounters with contemporary art seeks to shift politics from the body-politic of representation towards an understanding of politics as movement. In developing movement, we engage with the theories of touch, affect and the diagram which helps us imagine pedagogies outside of structural models that confine and limit how we understand the world.
