Moving Image Review & Art Journal (MIRAJ) is the first international peer-reviewed scholarly publication devoted to artists' film and video, and its contexts. 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.

Notes for Contributors Download


We invite contributions from art historians and critics, film and media scholars, curators and, not least, practitioners. We welcome articles, reviews, features and opinion pieces on a range of topics including but not restricted to:

  • re-reading of standard histories of artists’ film and video; 
  • the development of media arts; 
  • medium-specificity of film, video and new media, in a ‘post-medium condition’; 
  • the proliferation of projected and screen-based images in contemporary art; 
  • the still and the moving image; the role of sound; the televisual and the interaction of the moving image with other elements including technology, human presence and the installation environment; 
  • subjectivity and spectatorship; 
  • the spread of moving images beyond the classical spaces of the cinema and the gallery, across multiple institutions, sites and delivery platforms; 
  • the uses of the moving image in art: from political activism to pure sensory and aesthetic pleasure, from reportage to documentary testimony, from performativity to social networking. 

We welcome writing that intersects with other academic disciplines and artistic practices, and articles that offer new methods of theorizing and writing the moving image.

We publish the following types of writing: scholarly articles (5000–8000 words); opinion pieces, feature articles and interviews (3000–4000 words); review articles of books, individual works, exhibitions and events (3000–4000 words).

Scholarly articles and features are usually refereed, in which case anonymity is accorded to authors and referees. The referees are chosen for their expertise in the subject area. They are asked to comment on the comprehensibility, originality and scholarly worth of the article submitted. 

All writings should propose a central idea or thesis argued through a discussion of the work under review. Articles submitted to this journal should be original and not under consideration by any other publication. We do not publish articles by artists about their own work, nor reviews by curators or venues about their own exhibitions.

Referencing should be in Harvard style and all text should adhere to the Intellect Style Guide.

For all articles, features and reviews, please submit completed manuscripts. Submit contributions in docx or rtf format at https://www.intellectbooks.com/submit/miraj-the-moving-image-review-art-journal.
