Call for Submissions: Journal for Artistic Research (JAR). Deadline: Sept. 6, 2018.

JAR invites submissions from all fields and disciplines in which artistic research may be relevant, including areas that are not usually conceived of as artistic. We welcome submissions from practitioners with or without academic affiliations. JAR’s format for publishing artistic research, the exposition, invites authors to combine text, image, film, and audio material on expandable web pages, challenging the dominance of writing in traditional academic research. Submissions in multiple languages are accepted, if accompanied by an English translation, which will act as master version. Multilingual expositions are also welcome as long as translations are provided.
The Journal for Artistic Research (JAR) is an international, online, Open Access and peer-reviewed journal that disseminates artistic research from all disciplines. JAR invites the ever-increasing number of artistic researchers to develop what for the sciences and humanities are standard academic publication procedures. It serves as a meeting point of diverse practices and methodologies in a field that has become a worldwide movement with many local activities. JAR provides a digital platform where multiple methods, media and articulations may function together to generate insights in artistic research endeavours. It seeks to promote expositions of practice as research. In JAR artistic research is viewed as a developing field where research and art are positioned as mutually influential. Recognising that the field is ever developing and expanding, JAR remains open to continued re-articulations of its publishing criteria.

The JAR Network further facilitates exchange among the artistic research community. This part of the site is an extension of JAR rather than part of the peer reviewed journal. In the Network we publish writing that actively responds to issues in the field, allowing JAR to give focus to developments and make public some of the important discussions that artistic researchers have in their own local contexts.

For submissions information, and advice on whether your research is suitable for JAR, contact the Managing Editor, using the web contact form.

Submission Requirements

JAR works with an international editorial board and a large panel of peer-reviewers. Editor in Chief: Michael Schwab – Peer Review Editor: Julian Klein. Editorial Board: Alex Arteaga, Annette Arlander, Lucia D’Errico, Barnaby Drabble, Mika Elo, Azadeh Fatehrad, Yara Guasque, Julian Klein and Mareli Stolp.

JAR is published by the Society for Artistic Research (SAR), an independent, non-profit association. You can support JAR by becoming an individual or institutional member of SAR. More information can be found here.

DIANE DAMMER FELLOWSHIP IN PHOTOGRAPHIC ARTS AND SOCIAL ISSUES. Deadline: April 1, 2018

Columbia College Chicago and Heartland Alliance, two internationally-recognized institutions with deep roots in Chicago dating back more than 120 years, partner in hosting the Diane Dammeyer Fellowship in Photographic Arts and Social Issues. The fellowship is a unique, public commitment to socially engaged art, combining Columbia’s dedication to academic excellence and developing authentic, creative voices with Heartland Alliance’s bold history of advocating for the rights of the world’s most vulnerable populations.

The purpose of this postgraduate fellowship is to create an opportunity for a socially engaged photographer to immerse themselves in the community of Heartland Alliance and to produce a new, original and compelling body of photographic work that speaks to the human rights and social issues revealed through these experiences. By engaging with the Heartland Alliance community of participants and practitioners, the fellowship allows the artist to create a true connection between subject, audience and community. This serves the larger goal of the fellowship, which is to use photographic practice to elevate our collective awareness of social, economic, and cultural issues and to inspire positive social change.

A $25,000 stipend will be awarded for the 2018-2019 academic year to support the fellow’s work. Talented individuals who have completed an MFA in photography or in another related creative field and who are committed to active immersion and participation with Heartland Alliance and Columbia College Chicago are encouraged to apply.

 

Dates: April 2018

OPEN CALL FROM EMERGENCY! Deadline: July 25, 2014

—– English version (version français ci-dessous)—–

The EMERGENCY! collective is a a team of three curators and researchers in the field of art created in 2011. They conceive of artistic and curatorial practices as possibilities for intermediation and connection; the creative act is for them a catalyst for links among social, artistic and cultural communities, aiming for a subjective reinvention of life.

They have been invited for a residency at the Fonderie Kugler in Geneva from 7 to 18 October 2014, and they wish to seize this occasion to further the development of their ideas. The basis of their collective is the abolition of hierarchies and disciplinary frontiers; this strategy seeks to bring to light pluralistic forms of collaboration. In this spirit they are launching a call for projects to try and produce during these eleven days a space for independent culture, where dialogue and shared experience are at the heart of each moment.

They invite you to propose a project that could be developed in the course of two or three days, during which the public and other participants in the global event could assist and eventually intervene in the different stages of its realization. Proposals for one-time interventions such as film projections or ephemeral events linked to EMERGENCY! will also be taken into consideration.

EMERGENCY! invokes urgency, but it is also linked to the figure of what emerges. The present moment through which our society is passing is marked by an uncertainty and melancholy produced by the collective experience of successive crisis. The new institutional sensibility towards suffering makes us understand that the economic crisis is the cause for most pathologies. Moreover, the individuation of action accentuates the pressures on subjectivities. Society is perceived as an experience of unpredictable change, without a collective project, leaving the individual to his/her autonomy.

For them, all of these circumstances are signs of urgency; it is a call for immediate action. They feel it is necessary and pressing to move toward the emergence of new ways of being together and of being with the world. It is about bringing out new phenomena or making a new concept appear, in conditions where such an occurrence would not have been predictable. “To live means to be cruel and ruthless with everything that is old and weak in us”. Why not assume a condition of lightness, another state of mind, the same condition that one reaches at certain fleeting moments in life such as when dancing with abandon?

If you feel an affinity with what they have described in these few lines, send them a diagram/outline/text describing what you would like to do, as well as a portfolio with  some examples of your work to

emergencykugler2014@gmail.com.

Applications will be received until 25 July 2014.

People selected for EMERGENCY! ♯2 will be provided with accommodation and hospitality during their stay.

 

—– Version en français —– (english version above)

EMERGENCY! collectif est une équipe de trois curatrices et chercheuses en art. Elles conçoivent les pratiques artistiques et curatoriales comme une possibilité d’intermédiation et de connexion. La création est pour elles un catalyseur de liens entre des communautés artistiques, sociales et culturelles, qui vise à une réinvention personnelle de la vie.

Invitées en résidence à la Fonderie Kugler à Genève du 7 au 18 octobre 2014, elles veulent saisir cette occasion pour continuer à développer leurs idées. Le fondement de leur collectif est l’abolition des hiérarchies et des frontières disciplinaires, stratégie qui cherche à mettre en lumière des formes plurielles de collaboration. C’est pourquoi elles lancent un appel à projets pour tenter de produire pendant ces onze jours un espace de culture indépendant, où le dialogue et le partage seraient au coeur de chaque instant.

Elles vous invitent à proposer un projet qui se déroulerait sur deux ou trois jours, auquel le public et les autres participants au projet global pourraient assister et éventuellement intervenir lors des différentes instances de la réalisation. Cependant, des propositions ponctuelles comme une projection de film ou tout autre évènement éphémère en lien avec Emergency pourront bien sûr être retenues.

EMERGENCY ! veut dire urgence, mais se réfère aussi à l’idée d’émergence. Le moment actuel que notre société traverse est marqué par l’incertitude et la mélancolie du vécu collectif des crises successives. La nouvelle sensibilité institutionnelle à la souffrance fait comprendre que la plupart des pathologies sont dues à la crise économique. Ensuite, l’individualisation de l’action accentue les pressions sur les sujets. La société est perçue comme expérience du changement imprévisible, sans projet collectif, laissant l’individu à son autonomie.

Pour leurs, tout ceci marque une urgence qui appelle à l’action immédiate, elles ressentent comme nécessaire l’émergence de nouvelles formes de l’être ensemble, mais aussi de l’être avec le monde. Il s’agit de la mise en évidence de nouveaux phénomènes ou l’apparition d’un concept nouveau, dans des conditions qui ne le laissaient pas prévoir. « Vivre veut dire être cruel et impitoyable contre tout ce qui est vieux et faible en nous ». Pourquoi ne pas adopter une condition de légèreté, un état d’esprit autre, celui qu’on arrive à atteindre à certains moments furtifs, comme par exemple lorsqu’on danse?

Si vous observez et ressentez une affinité avec ce qu’elles developpent dans ces quelques lignes, envoyez une esquisse/schéma/texte de ce que vous aimeriez faire, ainsi qu’un portfolio avec quelques exemples de votre travail à l’adresse suivante:

emergencykugler2014@gmail.com.

Les candidatures seront acceptées jusqu’au 25 juillet.

Les personnes sélectionnées pour EMERGENCY! ♯2 pourront bénéficier d’un hébergement/hospitalité durant leur séjour.
