It offers a forum for debates surrounding all forms of artists' moving image and media artworks: films, video installations, expanded cinema, video performance, experimental documentaries, animations and other screen-based works made by artists. MIRAJ aims to consolidate artists' moving image as a distinct area of study that bridges a number of disciplines, not limited to, but including art, film and media.

Issue 10.1&2

‘Artists’ Moving Image, Ecology and Future Practices’

Call for Papers | Deadline: 1 July 2021

 

In his text ‘The Three Ecologies’, Guattari proposes three interconnected ecologies: the environment, social relations and human subjectivity, arguing that the ecological crisis that threatens our planet and ourselves is the direct result of the boundless expansion of global capitalism. This notion of ecology encompasses the environment, the social, the psychological and political and asks us to rethink and redefine new concepts in response to the challenges we now face as moving image artists, researchers and academics.  

Issue 10:1&2 aims to imagine and examine how practices in artists’ film and video can be transformed by a dedicated attention to notions of the ecological in its many expanded forms. We invite scholars, artists, writers, filmmakers and curators to explore what our role can be in engaging with new ways of thinking and making in response to the climate emergency.

This issue of MIRAJ will therefore address key areas of critical concern, from the culpability of the moving image industry’s extractive and management practices, to the rich potential of the artistic and filmmaking community to shape, challenge and disrupt dominant disciplinary knowledge and habitual practices and its role in the practical organisation of other futures.

This issue also aims to look beyond western centred responses to environmental and ecological challenges as our global ecology consists of impact at local level to people working in broad complex systems and changes. How might notions of the individual artists’ powers of creation be challenged and what other models of practice are of value in this context? The current pandemic has opened up these debates and demands responses to urgent social, ecological and political conditions in which other forms of practice – interdisciplinary and collective – can provide a new environmental cultural knowledge for our future.

We invite scholarly articles and essays that:

  • examine how dominant disciplinary knowledge and habituated practices of the moving image can be challenged and reimagined;
  • explore the value of transdisciplinary and epistemological frameworks to offer new perspectives and models of practice;
  • rethink the role of medium and moving image materiality;
  • assess the transformative role of artists, filmmakers and creative practitioners to both reimagine and address current climate challenges;
  • consider how we look beyond western centred responses to environmental and ecological challenges with new and developing networks in the Caribbean, North America, Europe and the Global South?
  • explore how artists, curators and filmmakers might develop new standards and processes within a sustainable practice;
  • examine how we can learn from past and present practices in experimental film and video art;
  • find new models of interdisciplinary and collective responses to imagine other worlds.

We welcome work that intersects with other academic disciplines and artistic practices. We encourage writing that is lucid without compromising intellectual rigour. 

We publish the following types of writing: scholarly articles (5000–8000 words); opinion pieces, feature articles and interviews (3000–4000 words); review essays of books, individual works, exhibitions and events (2500–3000 words). Scholarly articles will be blind peer-reviewed and feature articles and review essays can be peer-reviewed on request. All writings should propose a central idea or thesis argued through a discussion of the work under review.

Articles submitted to MIRAJ should be original and not under consideration by any other publication, including online publications. We do not publish articles by artists about their own work, nor reviews by curators or venues about their own exhibitions.

 

All submissions should be in English and adhere to the Intellect Style Guide (https://www.intellectbooks.com/media/Intellect_Style_Guide_2019.pdf)

 

Please submit completed manuscripts only. Send all contributions and proposals by e-mail in DOC or RTF format to the editorial assistant: miraj@cream.ac.uk
