Call for Submissions: Backstage Craft Special Issue for Decorating Dissidence

Calls for Makers 26-May-2020 - 10-Jul-2020

So much of the process, practice and labour of creation operates in the background of a piece. This issue will examine the unseen aspects of art and craft that live in the recesses of the work, in the wings, behind the scenes, the studio or backstage.

We’re inviting pieces of writing, creative responses, reviews, maker interviews, curator interviews, artwork and artist statements that engage with themes of backstage happenings, creative processes and the unseen elements present in contemporary craft and modernist histories.

Please email Polly.Hember@rhul.ac.uk with any proposals, ideas, thoughts, submissions or questions by 10th July 2020.

Decorating Dissidence is an interdisciplinary project exploring the political, aesthetic & conceptual qualities of craft from modernism to the contemporary. The project brings together art practitioners, makers, curators, activists and academics to break down disciplinary boundaries and find new ways to critically engage with feminist art history.

Please see the previous issues for an idea of the submission types via the Decorating Dissidence website: https://decoratingdissidence.com
