The Object as Process. Call for Essays Situating Artistic Practice (DEADLINE EXTENDED)

updated: 
Wednesday, October 16, 2019 - 4:21am
German A. Duarte
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, November 30, 2019

Objective

As a research team devoted to artistic practice, we are motivated by the questions: How does artistic practice lead to the production of knowledge? How does, in turn, artistic knowledge relate to its material base? How does contingent materiality guide the artist towards finding form and developing a statement?

The proposed volume is consecrated to the object as a process in order to offer new insights into the ways the object (broadly construed, comprising digital and other non-classical objects) becomes an active element in artistic practice. This exploration intends to furnish a better understanding of artistic production.

Discussing the epic and the novel, Mikhail Bakhtin refers to a “historical struggle of genres” that underwrites “the establishment and growth of a generic skeleton of literature.” Literature as a diverse discursive domain consists of various forms and genres that shape and functionalize it. There is a thin line between specific literary forms and genres. Is novel a form or genre? If novel is a form, we can think of particular genres of the novel such as gothic, whodunit, comedy, historical drama and so on. On the other hand, if novel is a genre, there are literary forms such as realism, naturalism, pastiche, parody, etc.
