Live Art on Paper
Call for recommendations and submissions for The Live Art Almanac Volume 3
An international publication of writing on and around Live Art
Deadline for submissions: 31 January 2012
We are seeking recommendations for material to include in The Live Art Almanac Volume 3. What articles or reviews have you read, what new stories have you spotted, what emails did you receive or forward to a friend, what blogs have you visited, what texts crossed your path? Did they engage you, provoke you, amuse you, or make you rethink Live Art and radical performance? If it caught your eye and had something interesting to say then we want to know about it.
We welcome all kinds of submissions for The Live Art Almanac Volume 3 - from more traditional forms such as journal essays, newspaper reviews, transcribed interviews, symposium papers, public lectures or book chapters, to digital forms such as blog entries, Facebook pages and Twitter conversations, to even less conventional forms of “publishing” such as emails, diary entries, and letters. The submission must be engaging, provocative, and thoughtful writing on and around the contemporary cultural landscape in which Live Art practice sits and must shed light on the various debates and ideas in circulation within that landscape.
Your recommendation or submission can be from any source between January 2010 to December 2011. We will prioritise material that has been published or distributed between these dates but we will also consider new writing not yet published or distributed. You may submit your own writing but we really want you to tell us about interesting material you have read. Contributions may be any length up to 5,000 words.
The publication is produced as a print-on-demand initiative with text only and no images. The Live Art Almanac is sold at cost price (ie the price it costs to manufacture and distribute the publication) and we are therefore not able to offer fees for contributions.
The content of The Live Art Almanac Volume 3 will be selected by an editorial panel made up of representatives of: Live Art Development Agency, Performance Space 122, Performance Space, La Pocha Nostra, and Maska. Permission will be sought from all authors and publishers before publication. The Live Art Almanac Volume 3 will be published late 2012.
WHAT IS LIVE ART?
Please look at the following link for more information:
We are conscious that the term ”Live Art“ is not necessarily used or understood consistently across different international contexts. We are also aware that the live, performative and experiential artistic practices that we are interested in, and the writing about and around that work, may struggle for recognition. We therefore strongly encourage responses to this Call that highlight underrepresented artists, projects and related issues.
