We are seeking recommendations for material to include in the Live Art Almanac Volume 4, to be co-published by the Live Art Development Agency and Oberon Books in Spring 2016.
The Live Art Almanac draws together all kinds of ‘found’ writing about and around Live Art from a wide range of sources – from more traditional forms such as magazine articles, newspaper reviews, transcribed interviews, or public lectures, to digital forms such as blog entries, Facebook pages and Twitter conversations, to less conventional forms of “publishing” such as emails, diary entries, and letters. It aims to be both a useful resource and a great read for artists, writers, students and others interested in the field of interdisciplinary, performance-based art throughout the world.
If you’ve read something that engaged, provoked, excited or amused you, or made you rethink Live Art and radical performance then we want to hear about it.
Your recommendation can be for any writing that was published, shared, sent or spread between January 2012 and December 2014.
You may submit your own writing, but we really want you to tell us about interesting material you have read. You can submit up to three pieces of writing for consideration. We’re also not so interested in receiving submissions of more academic writing as this is already brilliantly covered by many institutions and journals. Submissions can be any length up to 3,000 words.
