VIS – Nordic Journal for Artistic Research is a biannual artistic research journal published by Stockholm University of the Arts and Norwegian Artistic Research Programme, Diku. VIS is now looking to receive submissions to its seventh issue, edited by Anna Lindal, with the theme “Metamorphoses – Tales of the Ever-changing”.
In the VIS #7 call we propose the theme Metamorphosis. The idea of transformation and metamorphosis underpins almost all human creation and expression and has been present in the arts since Ovid’s time. But is the trope of metamorphosis still relevant or has it become obsolete in a post-internet era where time, information and art are seamlessly intertwined and where transformation is increasingly present in the everyday life? Alternatively, are contemporary artistic practices particularly well-suited to deal with this ever-present dynamism? VIS #7 wants to construct a volume that will embody the ways in which the modes of disseminating artistic research are themselves subject to flux and metamorphosis.
Submissions are received through the Research Catalogue. The deadline is 1 June 2021. Read the full description of the open call and all the details about the submission process on the VIS journal website.
