Call for texts and digital art projects: InterArtive: Art & Mobility – deadline 15 July 2013

Proposals that consider one or more of the following topics, among others, will be accepted:

Mobility, Cultural Diversity and Intercultural Dialogue| Migration, Exile and Diaspora | Obstacles to Mobility and Visa issues | Cultural Exchange, Artistic Residencies, Hospitality | Human interaction, Responsibilities, Eco-Mobility | Nomadic art practices | Translation and Language | Travel, Exploration and History of Mobility | Virtual mobility.

Texts should be around 800 to 3000 words. The works and art projects will be published in the form of a Virtual Gallery. For the publication of issue #55, the digital journal InterArtive will publish a special issue dedicated to diverse aspects of the current discussion about Art & Mobility. We invite theorists, critics, curators and artists who work on the subject to participate. Artistic practices and creativity are directly and closely linked to mobility. A great part of the art and architecture that we know would not have existed if it weren¹t for the urge to travel, to discover, for the need to go beyond limits – territorial and intellectual – of the known. To reflect on mobility today means to widen the perspective, to go beyond the concepts of travel, discovery and displacement; it calls for an analysis of the social, political, economic and cultural phenomena linked to it.
