We are interested in the following sorts of texts:
…… Criticism: Critical writing from within or without the communities of speculative artists. Diatribes, future vision for art practice, society, etc.
…… Fiction: Along the lines of, but not fully limited to: science fiction, fantasy, poetry, magical realism, etc.
…… Inquiry: Artists writing about their own practice, interests, etc.
…… Manifesto: Proclamations about new ways to make or consider speculative art in the unfolding age.
…… History: Research into backwater aspects of art history or cultural history as it interacts with the speculative field.
…… Artwork Reviews: As opposed to exhibition reviews — in depth inspections of specific artworks; contemporary or historical.
We are interested in around 1000 words for art reviews and 4000-6000 words for essays. Preference will be given to shorter, more concise works. We currently have a “rolling deadline” meaning we are always looking and considering submissions. The target for SAR_02 is a late Autumn release in 2018. If you are interested SAR reviewing a submission, please email us an abstract or description of what you’d like to write, or have written, via our email address.
