Remote Control-Call for papers


DRAIN-An online journal for contemporary art and culture(www.drainmag.com)
Call for Papers - Remote Control
Issue #02

‘What your data body says about you is more real than what you say about yourself. The data body is the body by which you are judged in society, and the body which dictates your status in the world.’
Critical Art Ensemble

Remote Control maybe considered a defining feature of the inter-relationship between manifestations of cultural control exerted via the Internet and recent premises in the physical and conceptual parameters of experimental digital art.  

This upcoming issue of DRAIN aims to question the relationship between local community action and globalization, and to consider that throughout anti-globalization protests, the Internet and cyberspace play a vital role.  Furthermore, strategies for dealing with these situations through art activism and other techniques on the Internet, such as telematics, have proven critical.

DRAIN would like to invite essays and reviews that respond to the themes of globalization and protest, power and cyberspace, surveillance culture, art activism, cultural imperialism, and ‘digital third worlds’.

General Guidelines

The journal seeks to promote lively and well-informed debate around theory and praxis. Each issue of Drain will have a specific concept that it explores. We are especially keen to publish pieces that connect the conceptual framework of each issue to broader themes such as globalization, ethics, gender, ethnicity, sexuality, and capitalism. As such we welcome creative responses to contemporary culture, as well as written work by practitioners in the field of culture. Our primary mission is to provide an open environment where a variety of creative activities can be explored with a combination of sensitivity and rigor.
