Guest-edited by artist Katrina Palmer, Arrhythmia is a new series that offers an opportunity for artists and writers whose work explores ideas of being out of joint with the predominant social order, whether through disrupted trajectories, physical displacement, or political dissonance. We are particularly interested in experimental work that articulates a discontinuous sense of identity, and writing, or the combination of writing and images in which the rhythm of the text is self-consciously questioned.
Three proposals will be selected for publication from this open submission. Arrhythmia follows previous series commissioned from open call, including: Semina, G.S.O.H The Rest is Dark, The Rest is Dark, Common Objectives, Contact and our most recent open submissions series, Interstices, guest edited by Bridget Penney.
Eligibility: Work can be submitted from UK and internationally based individuals, groups or collectives, in English language only. We are interested in submissions from artists and writers often unrecognised by mainstream institutions, and in particular those from the African Diaspora, liberation groups or whose minority identity has historically marginalised them.
What you get: Book Works will offer a fee to the three commissioned artists or writers of £1,250. There will also be a small budget allocated for expenses and travel.
