CALL FOR PAPERS:

DISTANT BODIES 

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN OUR BODIES CAN NO LONGER COME TOGETHER?

We are expanding our "Distant Bodies" open call and invite authors and researchers to submit papers on the subject of "What happens when our bodies can no longer come together?".

At the beginning of the global health crisis in spring 2020 we presented our ongoing digital exhibition format "Distant Bodies". Over the last few months, the virtual concept has been a constant field of experimentation for us and the artists as well as for our audience, in which we have advanced new ways of communication and exchange. The exhibition is currently featuring a wide-ranging international group of artists and will continue in virtual format as long as the global pandemic continues.

As a next step we expand the topic to authors and researchers and call for paper submissions, which are planned for publication next year in the form of the MON journal on the subject of "Distant Bodies".

MON welcomes submissions from all research disciplines, not only general visual art but also musical and kinesthetic art, history and theory of art, rhetorics, art linguistics, art production and anthropology.

MON is open to submissions, whether data-driven or theoretical, that contribute to the understanding of the effects of the global health crisis on the world of art. What effects of standstill, national lockdowns, but also interpersonal social distancing can be observed and how do they influence art and culture at the moment and in what forward-looking manner will they shape the post-pandemic era.
We are interested in both theoretical and empirical research, not restricted by disciplinary boundaries, to better understand the mechanism of art representation as a vehicle for communication.
