The editorial board of The Notebook for Art, Theory and Related Zones is accepting essays and reviews for the first issue of 2013
The Notebook for Art, Theory and Related Zones is a specialized, anonymously reviewed periodical focussing on contemporary visual arts in a broader cultural and theoretical context. The Notebook's aim is to cultivate Czech reflection on art by printing pieces written by specialists in the area of the humanities and social sciences that thematicize the current situation in art and today's culture in the Czech Republic and abroad. The Notebook is not by principle methodologically defined; the decisive criteria are quality, level of stimulation and relevance for reflection upon contemporary visual art.
The deadline for contributions to the upcoming number is 30. 6. 2013.
| 2012 Notebook for Art, Theory and Related Zones 13
This edition of Notebook examines three ways in which theory and the practice of art interact: 1) the radical political statements of two artistic groups flirting with internal contradictions (Tereza Stejskalová, "The Ménage a trios of Theory, Art, and Politics"); 2) the attempts by art criticism to adapt an apparently apposite concept to a different context (Tomáš Pospěch, "Visualism and Its Notion of Photography as Photography"); 3) activity in the ambiguous zone of "recent" art, in which the differences are blurred between criticism and the history of art (Milena Bartlová, "What Does It Mean to Write Art History?"). There is also a translation of an essay by Andreas Müller-Pohle entitled "Visualism" that links up to the article by Pospěch, and a review of the monograph by Milena Bartlová entitled Genuine Presence.
