CALL FOR PAPERS: FILTH
From the Wellcome Collection's 2011 exhibition Dirt: the filthy reality of everyday life, via Deutsche Börse Photography Prize 2012 nominee Pieter Hugo's images of Ghanaian refuse tips, to Harmony Korine's Trash Humpers (2010), filth is having its cultural moment.
Filth has a wide range of material associations, including dirt, waste, rubbish, and the human body. Filth has moral connotations: of sexuality, but also in the context of political discourse. Filth is unstable and insidious; definitions of what constitutes filth are subjective and its boundaries are impossible to circumscribe.
