CfP: Moving Image Review & Art Journal (MIRAJ)

Issue 8:1 : Beside Chantal Akerman’s NOW

The Moving Image Review & Art Journal (MIRAJ) is the first
peer-reviewed publication devoted to artists’ film and video, and its
contexts. MIRAJ offers a widely distributed international forum for
debates surrounding all forms of artists’ moving image and media

This special edition invites calls for papers reflecting on the
renowned artist and filmmaker, Chantal Akerman’s, film practice,
particularly the moving image works she developed in the context of
gallery exhibition.

The editors invite contributions from art historians and critics, film
and media scholars, curators, and, not least, practitioners. We seek
pieces that offer theories of the present moment but also writings
that propose historical re-readings. They welcome essays that:

re-view canonical works and texts, or identify ruptures in the
standard histories of artists’ film and video;
discuss the development of media arts, including the history of
imaging technologies, as a strand within the history of art;
address issues of the ontology and medium-specificity of film, video
and new media, or the entanglement of the moving image in a
‘post-medium condition’;
attempt to account for the rise of projected and screen-based images
in contemporary art, and the social, technological, or
political-economic effects of this proliferation;
investigate interconnections between moving images and still images;
the role of sound; the televisual; and the interaction of the moving
image with other elements including technology, human presence and the
installation environment;
analyse para-cinematic or extra-cinematic works to discover what these
tell us about cinematic properties such as temporal progression or
spectatorial immersion or mimetic representation;
explore issues of subjectivity and spectatorship;
investigate the spread of moving images beyond the classical spaces of
the cinema and galleries, across multiple institutions, sites and
delivery platforms;
consider the diverse uses of the moving image in art: from political
activism to pure sensory and aesthetic pleasure, from reportage to
documentary testimony, from performativity to social networking;
suggest new methods of theorizing and writing the moving image.
