<nettime-ann> CFP "Art and Materiality" in Artnodes Journal.

Call for papers open for the Special Section on âArt and Materialityâ to be published in Artnodes Journal.

Artnodes is a peer-reviewed Open Access journal published by the Open University of Catalonia since 2002 that comes twice a year, in June and November. http://artnodes.uoc.edu

We invite authors to submit their original research papers of no more than 5.000 words in English, Spanish or Catalan. Papers should be both well-argued and thought-provoking and offer substantial contributions to current research. The Journal is indexed in SCOPUS, Carhus Plus +, ERIH, MIAR, DOAJ, and others. For this June Special Section articles should be submitted by the 1st of April 2015 and if accepted will be published in June 2015. We strongly recommend checking the journalâs author guidelines before submitting an article.

The materials and technologies of the contemporary art invite us to reconsider, not only the role that these play in the articulation of artistic practices, but also the theoretical frameworks that demonstrate the role of the materiality itself inside the Art History. These premises involve new methodological challenges and important epistemological transformations in the examination of art; challenges that must be analysed, discussed and contrasted with the long and fertile tradition of Art Studies. Fundamental problems such as the distribution of the agencies involved in the research and the artistic practice, the lines of temporal causality, the interconnection between materialities and discursivities, the role of technology and society, the spatiality and location of Art, gain relevance from the suggested challenges.

This Special Section of Artnodes Journal welcomes those researches that rebuild the relation between art and its materiality: contributions focused on theoretical, methodological and epistemological reconsiderations and, specially, empirical studies centered on art routines and infrastructures. Perspectives such as Media Archaeology, the Actor-Network Theory or the New Materialisms contribute decisively to the possibility of blurring or even erasing preconceived ontological distinctions âinoperative today-, traditionally supported by the framework of our modernity.

We are alluding to established dichotomies such as subject/object, matter/discourse, theory/practice, social/technological, expert/non-expert that lay out important onto-epistemic challenges to overcome. Our interest is precisely to connect these new perspectives with the tradition of history, theory and art practice, starting always from both the reflection and the experience with the routines, the infrastructures and the art fields.

Submissions may explore these topics:

  • Researches about art infrastructures: museums, art galleries, centers of production and investigation, archives, exhibition and distribution displays, art market dynamics.

  • Investigations about objects and artistic practices: new materials, technologies inside the art field, production processes, distribution, conservation and preservation of the art and the media, etc.

  • Other art histories and narratives: âminorâ or divergent histories, non linear narratives, emergency of novelties, relational temporality and spatiality, forgotten geographical areas, etc.

  • Onto-epistemic and methodological art frameworks: human and non-human agency, relations between practice and theory, experts and non-experts, trans/inter/meta/non-disciplinarity, etc.

We strongly encourage you to submit your paper to Artnodes. Remember, articles should be submitted by the 1st of April, 2015.
