“Isolation” International Call - Art & Literature Journal - Deadline August 31, 2020
Around the world for the past few months, people have been isolating to protect each other. Yet even before the pandemic, we have all felt isolated at one time or another. Feeling separate from others is a part of the human experience. Isolation can reflect a physical, emotional or intellectual separation. Isolation can be voluntary or forced upon us. It can be a healing respite and teach us and give us space to grow. Or, it can be a miserable torment. Many of our life choices are intended to meet our need to feel connected. Share your literal, abstract or in-between interpretation of ISOLATION.

The Museum of Dead Words: The Online Series
Since 2017, the Museum of Dead Words, an interactive hip-hop theatre show by playwright, MC, and educator, Dyalekt, has sought to inspire action and empathy in the mercurial age of the Internet. The impacts of Covid-19 and global resistance against systemic oppression have reinstated our thinking of this show as a space for collaborative dialogue as we navigate together ever-evolving challenges to community and conversation. In an online series of panel discussions, interviews, community conversations, live art happenings, and excerpts from the live show, we will unpack one word from the museum per week between September 7 and November 22.
Since we can't be in a physical "museum" together, we're asking makers, game designers, architectural designers, installation artists, and all other physical or virtual 3D artists and creators to visualize an environment specific to one of the 11 words below, to be toured virtually during The Online Series:
Interested applicants should submit a written proposal and a link to previous work online via museumofdeadwords.com/theonlineseries. There is no fee to enter. Selected artists will receive a $100 stipend. International artists 18 years or older with access to a camera and the internet are eligible to apply. Artist teams may apply. Please read the full prospectus on our website at museumofdeadwords.com
Submission Deadline: Extended Through July 13, 11:59 pm EST
Notification of Acceptance: Monday, July 20
Finished Work Completed: Monday, August 24
The Online Series: Week of September 7 – Week of November 16

Risk Society: call for essays and artworks
Transdisciplinary journal that investigates global and local cultures of risks
Call for essays, artworks and book reviews.
Extended deadline: 1 September 2020
Societies worldwide face unprecedented future uncertainties. The information age allows for new perceptions on risks, which increasingly began to play a central role in policies and broader decision-making. Today, the growing amount of data on biodiversity loss, destructive nanotechnology, global pandemics, and other high-stakes scenarios leave present policy makers primarily tasked with reducing the possibility of something 'bad' or 'worse' to happen in the future. The term 'Risk Society' describes how modern societies deal with these high levels of uncertainty created by modernity itself. However, as Anthony Giddens points out when elaborating on Ulrich Becks' famous work, "The idea of 'risk society' might suggest a world which has become more hazardous, but this is not necessarily so. Rather, it is a society increasingly preoccupied with the future (and also with safety), which generates the notion of risk." In contrast to what seemingly 'objective' data implies, risks are first and foremost speculative narratives that emerge from cultural and historical contexts. In this regard it is more and more important to understand that precarity and uncertainty are not just conditions that will pass, but function as new forms of governance that shape the current state of the world. In short, risks do not only affect the world hereafter, but future speculations also fundamentally impact societies in the present day.
Risk Society, an interdisciplinary publication that deals with local and global cultures of risks, encourages contributions for its debut issue. We believe that a sharper lens is needed to be brought to bear on alternative models of measurement and thinking, and on the way how regelation regimes regenerate social, economic and political power structures. We invite scholars, investigative journalists and artists to elaborate on how certain risks are understood, weaponized, manipulated and produced. More than ever we feel public discussions should be focusing on complex perspectives that are easily overshadowed by dominant media discourses. Therefore, while approaching risks as an intellectual terrain, we especially welcome contributions of empiric cases that illustrate how risk narratives are sites for social ordering. Moreover, we notice that existing explorations and alternative knowledge systems often struggle to translate theory into practice. We especially encourage thinkers to consider and develop alternative models of knowledge, governance and praxis.
Although definitely not limited to, contributions might cover the topics of bodily, psychological and spiritual health, labor security, the environment, technological developments and dataism, religious traditions, cryptocurrency, poverty, and space exploration and governance. We encourage and seek decentralized dialogues, in which different voices can coexist and create different narratives of the future. We welcome critical pieces from thinkers and practitioners that provide:
Insights on the creation and use of risk narratives from a global, meso and local perspective.
We welcome textual submissions and book reviews of ca. 1500 words each. Accepted visual forms include new media, sound, audio visual essays, photographs and others. Selected projects will be published digitally in Risk Society #1 in the Fall of 2020. Submissions accompanied with a short CV can be send before 1 September 2020 to sarah [op] risksociety [punt] org.
Please visit www.risksociety.org for more information on the editorial and other projects and events.
