RECAPS accepts submissions both topically related to specific calls and for general consideration for upcoming issues. We are also looking for design, tech, and editorial support on a volunteer basis. You can reach us at RECAPSmagazine@gmail.com.
In the spirit of re-thinking our project regularly, it is after many issues with specific themes that we are pleased to announce an open call for submissions. Send art, analysis, essays, fiction, polemics, poetry, posters, gifs, scores, webisodes, mp3s, curated archival material, etc. etc. to RECAPSmagazine@gmail.com
In the interim, keep us posted on your up-to-the-minute work on the Climate March, solidarity organizing from Ferguson to Gaza, and other current and cultural events for our BLOG section, which recently received a shout-out from hackivist heros, Anonymous.
ISSUE 11 +12: RETHINK ENVIRONMENTYayoi Kusama, The Anatomic Explosion Happening ,Central Park, 1969
After much reflecting on how best to mobilize the RECAPS archive and generate new material, we have decided to mark the occasion of our upcoming 11th issue “Rethink Environment,” by hosting a happening with in Los Angeles. We kindly request your presence virtually and/or physically.
We are seeking submissions and proposals that re-consider the potentials of a happening. As we look critically at how we gather, we must also re-think the environments in which we do so. Send us your ruminations on radical architecture, plots for new situations, reflections on communing, proposals for ritual, performance possibilities, installation ideas, etc. Please send your submissions to RECAPSmagazine@gmail.com by March 15th, 2014.
ISSUE 10: RECLAIM MEDIA
(Social media, mixed media, hypermedia, print media, alternative media,broadcast media, new media, tactical media, media surveillance, etc.)
RECAPS is seeking contributions that broadly address the idea of reclaiming media. We are looking for new journalism and archival zines, smartphone art and politics, web series and webbed knowledges, self-published opuses and crowd sourced manifestos, and whatever else you may consider either tangentially or directly related to the idea of reclaiming and rethinking media.
Additionally, we are taking this opportunity to reflect on the previous issues and what it means to be a DIY online magazine in the current media landscape. Not falling easily into the categories of literary journal or arts blog, and neither a commercial or non-for-profit magazine, we are (re)considering the role this type of publication can play at the intersections of art and politics. Let us know your thoughts! To celebrate the 10th issue we will be producing a unlimited edition book that will be downloadable for print.
Please send your submissions to RECAPSmagazine@gmail.com by December 1, 2013.
