Deadline: August 15, 2020
You are invited to submit articles for the annual digital publication Faire monde(s), to be published at the end of 2020.
Our aim is to provide a broader aesthetic and critical reflection on the Caribbean context, its specificities or its similarities with global production and to reflect on artistic practices from all continents.
For this first issue, we invite you to reflect on the broader concept of the landscape.
The following topics may be considered:
– The landscape as an outburst
– The landscape as a witness to history
– Artists’ ecological activism, another relationship to the landscape
– The landscape as a lyrical metaphor for a mental state
— Landscape as subject or setting
– Landscape as a support or material
– Landscapes of silence, landscapes of uncertainty
– A destroyed or tortured landscape, another landscape
– Immersive landscape environments
– Landscape, a major issue in contemporary photography
– Beyond the landscape
How to participate:
Articles submitted to the journal—essays, conversations, artist profiles—about art must be previously unpublished and presented in their final format. The articles must focus on the work of one or more artists. Each article will be submitted to the members of the selection committee.
We are looking for two types of contribution:
– 7 critical essays of 4,500 to 7,000 characters, paid at a fixed rate of €300 each
– 4 short articles of 3,000 to 4,000 characters, paid at a fixed rate of €200 each
Please remember to include between 5 and 8 royalty-free images to illustrate these articles. The articles can be submitted in French, English or Spanish, and will be published in the chosen language (no translation).
First deadline: August 15, 2020
The initial submission consists of a short 150-word biography, a list of articles published in the last two years, and a 250-word abstract of the proposed article.
After the selection committee’s decision, the selected texts will be announced on September 15, 2020.
