A new project by Droste Effect magazine, Bulletin is a monthly online publication dedicated to curated art papers.


Bulletin aims to explore the diverse ways in which the complexities of being in contemporary art are expressed. It is fundamental for us to investigate the cultures around the contemporary art world, and to understand what constructs our present. Through non-academic writings from a number of disciplines in the humanities, together with contributions by artists, filmmakers, poets, and theoreticians, Bulletin aims to map the dynamic ways in which cultures use visual means to record, redefine and question once again the historical context and presence in time of different artistic productions.


After a process of editorial curatorship, a selection of the online Bulletins will be published on paper.



Even though Bulletin will host different and dynamic sections, the editorial board has indicated three different sections for the development of critical inquiries about contemporary art:

_Non Academic Papers

_Artist Portfolios*



*Narrative portfolios. We need a narrative statement with your proposal.


The submitted art papers may be in English or Italian. Those selected for publication are subject to a review process.


Please send your submission (abstract) with a short bio and selected links to
