OUST – CALL FOR WORKS

March 19, 2015 – 2:16 am |

CALL OUT FOR EXPERIMENTAL TEXT / ARTICLES / ESSAYS / FRAGMENTED POETRY

EMAIL ALL SUBMISSIONS TO HELLO@OUSTMAGAZINE.COM

OUST IS A BRAND NEW CONTEMPORARY CULTURE MAGAZINE WHICH AIMS TO PROMOTE INTERNATIONAL TALENT ACROSS THE ARTS THROUGH A SERIES OF INSPIRING AND EXPERIMENTAL PUBLICATIONS. EACH ISSUE WILL BE CURATED AROUND A WORD AND WILL SHOWCASE INTERNATIONAL WORK ACROSS PHOTOGRAPHY, ART, FILM, ESSAYS AND CREATIVE WRITING. EACH PUBLICATION WILL ACT AS A HAND HELD EXHIBITION OF CURIOSITY AND VIRTUOSITY, THOUGHT AND OBSERVATION.

ISSUE NO.1 WILL BE BASED ON THE WORD DECEPTION . THIS CAN BE INTERPRETED SOCIALLY, POLITICALLY, CONCEPTUALLY OR PURELY THROUGH ARTISTIC FORMS. THE WORD WILL BE OPEN FOR DIALOGUE AND YIELDS NO ULTIMATE DEFINITION.

“THE PHRASE, THE WORLD WANTS TO BE DECEIVED, HAS BECOME TRUER THAN HAD EVER BEEN INTENDED. PEOPLE ARE NOT ONLY, AS THE SAYING GOES, FALLING FOR THE SWINDLE; IF IT GUARANTEES THEM EVEN THE MOST FLEETING GRATIFICATION THEY DESIRE A DECEPTION WHICH IS NONETHELESS TRANSPARENT TO THEM.” -ADORNO, THEODOR W. THE CULTURE INDUSTRY: SELECTED ESSAYS ON MASS CULTURE
DECEPTIVE / UNTRUE / FALSE / UNREAL / INACCURATE / FLAWED / MISLEADING / DISTORTED / FAKE / AMBIGUOUS / FABRICATED / ILLUSIVE / DISHONEST / CRAFTY / INEXACT

AS A START-UP CULTURE MAGAZINE, OUST WILL BE PUBLISHED IN PRINT TWICE ANNUALLY AND AIMS TO BE DISTRIBUTED IN ARTS AND CULTURAL INSTITUTIONS ACROSS IRELAND AND EUROPE. OUST AIMS IN THE FUTURE TO HOST EXHIBITIONS, TALKS AND EVENTS, ALONG WITH SHOWCASING SELECTED WORKS ON OUR WEBSITE. OUST MAGAZINE WILL GIVE INVALUABLE EXPOSURE TO INTERNATIONAL TALENT ACROSS A RANGE OF ARTISTIC DISCIPLINES.
