The Pluralist: Openings and Closings, the first issue of the 2019/20 academic year. As beginnings, or the illusion of beginnings, intersect with the calendar year drawing to a close, we wanted to pause think about the strange spaces of possibility which they open up. This issue hosts a range of writing and visual contributions from an essay on the bodily effects of learning a new language, to poetry about the hallucinatory sensations of dreaming doors, to collages about yearning for home – the contributions consider with the way we often render on our own narratives as a series of openings and closings. Please join us at the ICA for the launch, 7-8th Dec.
Also, they have a new call out:
In the next issue of The Pluralist we’ll be considering the interplay between Self/Other. This can be interpreted as a specific, or narrow and open-ended prompt. You may wish to consider:
Self-hood, self-obsession, self-care / The Other as in othering / Approaches to/obsessions with understanding ourselves / Representations of self/other in art / The Selfie / The ‘other’ in relationships - the ‘other woman’, the ‘other mother’ / etc. To submit work contact: firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com
