OPEN CALL FOR TEXTS AND ARTWORKS
ENTKUNSTUNG IV • VIOLENCE
ENTKUNSTUNG is an independent print and online publication for art and cultural criticism, a curatorial and publishing studio and record label based in Berlin and Vienna since 2017.
The editorial team is pleased to announce VIOLENCE as the research topic for its fourth print and online publication. Prior topics include POWER, EMANCIPATION(S), FICTIONS, and THE BODY.
After a creative hiatus, we return with a topic so old in history, literature and art, and so current and pressing that we regarded it necessary to tackle it, yet again. By examining VIOLENCE, we strive to display the respective contemporary standpoints in social, political, economic, scientific, philosophical, artistic, and aesthetic discourses.
As »What is violence?« remains a question nobody can answer completely, we seek to collect and present a multitude of perspectives that will be an imprint of what is understood by VIOLENCE today.
We are looking for cutting-edge contributions from any field of knowledge to be included in VIOLENCE as a two-volume edition that will be published in October 2024. Since we are an independent publication that does not rely on public or private funding, unfortunately we are unable to remunerate contributors. The published content will be displayed and fully accessible on our website.
Please send us your material (abstracts, complete essays, statements, positions, poems, reviews, interviews, artworks, recordings, etc.) until January 31, 2024.
If your submission is accepted, the editorial team will contact you with feedback before March 2024.
