Call for Submissions for Cultural Workers’ Journal

first_img Similar Stories Reddit LinkedIn 0 Share 0 Deadline: 31 December 2012Open to: cultural workers interested in exposing corruption or exploitation of cultural works to the publicBenefits: publication in online gazetteDescriptionArtleaks was founded in 2011 as an international platform for cultural workers where instances of abuse, corruption and exploitation are exposed and submitted for public inquiry. After over a year of activity, members of the collective ArtLeaks felt an urgent need to establish a regular on-line publication as a tool for empowerment in the face of today’s systemic abuse of cultural workers’ basic labor rights, repression or even blatant censorship and growing corporatization of culture.Namely: radical (political) projects are co-opted under the umbrella of corporate promotion and gentrification; artistic research is performed on research hand-outs, creating only an illusion of depth while in fact adding to the reserve army of creative capital; the secondary market thrives as auction houses speculate on blue chip artists for enormous amounts of laundered money, following finance capitalism from boom to bust, meanwhile, most artists can’t even make a living and depend on miserly fees, restrictive residencies, and research handouts to survive; galleries and dealers more and more heavily copyright cultural values; approximately 5% of authors, producers and dealers control 80% of all cultural resources (and indeed, in reality, the situation may be even worse than these numbers suggest) ; certain cultural managers and institutions do not shy away from using repressive maneuvers against those who bring into question their mission, politics or dubious engagements with corporate or state benefactors; and last but not least, restrictive national(ist) laws and governments suppress cultural workers through very drastic politics, not to mention the national state functions as a factor of neoliberal expression in the field of culture.Do you recognize yourself in the scenarios above? Do you accept them as immutable conditions of your labor? Artleaks strongly believe that this dire state of affairs can be changed. Artleaks strongly believe that issues of exploitation, repression or cooptation cannot be divorced from their specific politico-economic contexts and historical conditions, and need to be raised in connection with a new concept of culture as an invaluable reservoir of the common, as well as new forms of class consciousness in the artistic field in particular, and the cultural field more generally.The question then emerges, what is creative work today? To structure this undifferentiated categorizations, Artleaks will begin by addressing in their journal all those “occupied” with art who are striving towards emancipatory knowledge in the process of their activity.The theme for the first issue will be “Breaking the Silence – Towards Justice, Solidarity and Mobilization.” The main theme of the first issue of their journal is establishing a politics of truth by breaking the silence on the art world. They suggest that breaking the silence on the art world is similar to breaking the silence of family violence and other forms of domestic abuse. Similarly as when coming out with stories of endemic exploitation from inside the household, talking about violence and exploitation in the art world commonly brings shame, ambivalence and fear.They believe these are not singular instances but part of a larger system of repression, abuse and arrogance that have been normalized through the practices of certain cultural managers and institutions. Their task is to find voices, narratives, hybrid forms that raise consciousness about the profound effects of these forms of maltreatments: to break through the normalizing rhetoric that relegate cultural workers’ labor to an activity performed out of instinct, for the survival of culture at large, like sex or child rearing which, too are zones of intense exploitation today.Structure of publicationThe journal would be divided into 6 major sections.Critique of cultural dominance apparatusesForms of organization and history of strugglesThe struggle of narrationsGlossary of termsEducation and its discontentsBest practices and useful resourcesFurther descriptions of these six categories can be read HERE.Eligibility and SubmissionsArtleaks’ open call addresses all those who feel the urgency to discuss the aforementioned-issues. The deadline to submit your contributions is 31 December 2012. Contributions should be delivered in English or as an exemption in any language after negotiations with the editorial council. The editorial council of Artleaks takes responsibility of communicating with all authors during the editorial process.Please contact them with any questions, comments and submit materials to: [email protected] When submitting material, please also note the section under which you would like to see it published.The on-line gazette will be published in English under the Creative Commons attribution noncommercial-share alike and its materials will be offered for translation in any languages to any interested parts.Find more information on the original website HERE.

Related Shows Show Closed This production ended its run on Jan. 5, 2020 Alison Luff View Comments Alison Luff has been learning all about sugar, butter and flour since she joined Waitress on Broadway, leading the show as Jenna Hunterson. Luff is the newest addition to the incredible group of women who have stepped into Jenna’s shoes and she’s loving every minute of it. “I find it a little trickier to replace in a show because you want to honor the people who have done it before you,” Luff said in a recent interview on Broadway.com’s #LiveAtFive. “I think I really started to own myself and my career when I realized I can’t do what they do better. I need to figure out what I do best and what I can offer that no one else can. [Jenna] was a dream role of mine back when I saw [Waitress] in November 2016. The first five minutes of watching it I had tears in my eyes, I turned to my husband and said, ‘I have to do this.’ I think about that almost every night when that curtain goes up. I like the imperfect nature of the story. It’s hard to make an affair a love story and make people root for it. I really love doing it.”Now appearing alongside Luff are YouTube stars Colleen Ballinger and Todrick Hall, whose fans have given Luff even more joy. “Colleen and Todrick have brought in some really beautiful fans,” she said. “I think one of my favorite things is going to the stage door every night and hearing, ‘This is my first Broadway show.’ We all remember our first Broadway show. Their fans are so kind and sweet and I think that’s a testament to them. They’re very kind people who spend so much time with their fans and are open with them, it makes a difference.”center_img Waitress When Luff is not on stage bringing a story to life, she is working with husband Matt Magnusson on their band called The Bones. “My husband and I are both actors, so we do have this storytelling background and we really try to use music as a form of storytelling when we write,” she said. “We actually have been commissioned to write a musical and we’re in the process of writing it at the moment.”With only a few weeks left as Jenna (Luff’s final performance is September 15), she is starting to look back on her journey to the diner. “Jenna has been such a gift and it’s been a dream role,” she said. “There are so many lessons she’s taught me like leaning into the imperfections of who you are, because her imperfections really shine. The line we always remember is, ‘She’s messy but she’s kind.’ Kindness will go a long way and things can get messy, but as long as you stay true—you’re going to stay on track.”See Luff in Waitress, playing at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre.Watch the full #LiveAtFive episode below!
