April 5, 2012 § 1 Comment
Call for Papers Deadline: Apr 30, 2012
The Journal of Art Theory and Practice is a peer-reviewed publication. The journal is published twice a year in print and is affiliated with the professional society called Korean Society of Art Theories. In June 2012 we plan to publish a thematic issue, “Remembering Disaster,” for which we would like to encourage submissions. We welcome submissions from art historians, critics, artists, curators, philosophers, administrators, and other art scholars and professionals. We have been experiencing unprecedented disasters, which have taken the immense number of lives, destroyed both nature and civilized sites. Our insatiable desire for development has damaged the ecological system and resulted in global warming, which has brought unpredictable disasters in return such as earthquakes, drought, famine, hurricane, the melting of Arctic ice, rapidly expanding deserts, a pandemic, etc. We explore the ways in which to reflect on these phenomena in relation to art. We seek discussions on historical examples of art, from classical to contemporary, which deals with the relation between the human and disaster. Possible discussion includes philosophical and critical reflections on the sublime facing the unpredictable and unknown power of the disaster, which the human may have unintentionally caused. All perspectives and methodologies are welcome.
