CFP: Special Issue 32, "Aesthetics of Idleness"

InVisible Culture: An Electronic Journal for Visual Culture
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, January 15, 2020

For its thirty-second issue, InVisible Culture: An Electronic Journal for Visual Culture invites scholarly articles and creative works that address the aesthetics of idleness. This issue will also feature an introduction by and an interview with Jean Ma.

Idleness suggests slack and stasis. It evokes empty, wasted time, and thus the dangers of being useless. It even recalls the religious notion that there is something satanic about not being occupied with work. But what are the aesthetics of idleness? In what ways does being idle function as a cultural or artistic practice? How can we theorize idleness, and perhaps do so idly? Or does treating idleness as a site of cultural analysis and critical theory undo the danger of it?

Amsterdam, 14th & 15th July 2020

When William Murray, Lieutenant Colonel in the Western Fronts (1914-1919) wrote:

“We ceased fighting today and I have seen the last shot fired… No more danger, no more wars

and no more mud and misery” he spoke of the future; the future that would be without

dangers, wars, mud and misery. He inscribed the future within possibilities that his present

offered to him. His future and present were entangled through the war that it was becoming

his past.
