un Magazine 9.2 Call For Proposals

alt text

un Projects is now calling for proposals for un Magazine issue 9.2.

The deadline for proposals is 5pm Monday 8 June 2015.

We are seeking proposals of writing in the form of long-form articles, reviews, interviews and fiction. We are also calling for proposals of artist pages, particularly significant proposals of 6 to 8 pages (3 to 4 page spreads). Issue 9.2 will be launched in September 2015. un Projects is able to pay all contributors.

Issue 9.2 will again be edited by Pip Wallis (and sub-edited by Aodhan Madden and Beth Caird) and will continue to investigate the themes and subjects in un Magazine issue 9.1:

As Leo Bersani asks in his essay Illegitimacy (in relation to the slippery gender-performance of Divine in Jean Genet’s novel Our Lady of the Flowers):

"How can we become unnamable? The question is relevant if, as I believe, unnamability can operate as an effective form of resistance to networks of repressive power."

How might art-making and writing express (or fail to express) the subject as a multiplicity, as a dynamic intersection of different positions and identities? How might art, as a fundamentally social and active practice, be a means to create dissensus or give voice to subjects when it participates in unnaming, unknowing, poetics, speculation or gesture?


To submit your proposal download and complete this application form.

Deadline for proposals is 5pm Monday 8 June 2015.

If you have any questions specifically about un Magazine issue 9.2 please email editor Pip Wallis directly.
