CFP The Anarchival Impulse – Mnemoscape Magazine – World

CFP The Anarchival Impulse – Mnemoscape Magazine
To mark the launch of Mnemoscape Magazine, which coincides with the ten years anniversary of the publication of Hal Foster’s An Archival Impulse (2004), we would like to prompt a reflection on the notion of the ‘anarchival’.

An Archival Impulse, has establish itself as aseminal essay tackling the emergence of a specific archival tendency in contemporary art. However, as Foster noticed, this trend could perhaps be better defined as an “anarchival impulse”. For the first issue of Mnemoscape Magazine, we would like to return to Foster’s early intuition and propose an epistemological shift in the study of archival art practices, one that privileges their anarchival disposition, while speculating on the positive and liberating aspects of forgetting.

We invite submissions of single-authored or joint papers, interviews, reviews of art exhibitions and art projects that are concerned with the anarchival impulses.

Send a 300 words abstract and CV to: mnemoscape[at]gmail.com

Deadline: 30 June 2014
