The field of interest of ART-e-FACT's fourth issue is the amalgam
of the global and the local.
We wish to focus on the mutation of the globalization process,
modes of surpassing local confinements of cultural and artistic
fields, investigation and articulation of glocal/borderline
topics and practices which do not necessarily generate new narratives,
but place the already existing/local ones into a global context.
What is it that determines successful models of integration
of the local into the global, as well as strategies used in
a struggle for universal recognition and visibility? Are there
really new localisms being made before globalization can destroy
them, as according to Bruno Latour? How do we distinguish legitimate
from illegitimate glocal annexes? What is 'big' and what is
'small' and are these categories defined exclusively by the
criteria of integration with the rest of the world?
How do such phenomena, including a universal nomadization of
all who participate in these new cultural dynamics (artists,
curators, architects,…), reflect on design, architecture,
urban iconography, and the generic appearance of the cities?
What defines the new glocalities and what are the cohesive factors
in shaping the complex glocal/transnational configuration?
Finally, we are interested in the possibility of creating a
dynamic glocal forum and a regional network based on dialogue
(glocalogue), intercity network of cultural nomads, leading
to a new balance of the local and the global.
The call for contributions is open to various modes of articulating
the topic of the glocal/ogue:
1. theoretical texts and critical reflections
2. short statements by artists, activists, critics
3. artworks — e.g. short video and film inserts, photography,
internet or web projects
4. political and economic manifestos, or simply a list of suggested
links to interesting projects on the internet, dedicated to
Application deadline is March 1st, 2005.
