I’m super proud to be a contributing editor for Emergency INDEX.
I hope you’ll all consider being a part of it, too.
The details are below, but here also is a note from co-editor (with Matvei Yankelevich) Yelena Gluzman: Under-represented in the 2012 volume: performances made in the context of advertising, community art, sociology, philosophy, conceptualism and therapy; performances from Russia, China, Vietnam, the Middle East; performances that used the book itself as a space in which to perform. So….think broadly, spread the word….and have at:
Emergency INDEX is now accepting submissions of performance documentation for its forthcoming volume.
INDEX is an annual print publication of performance documented in the words of its creators. It provides a cutting-edge view of the ways in which performance is used in dance, theater, poetry, music, visual art, political activism, scientific research, advertising, terrorism, and elsewhere. INDEX is radically inclusive, rigorously edited, and thoroughly indexed. If you call what you make performance, you can submit a description of a project made in 2012 for the next volume. Please see guidelines here. Deadline for contributions is December 31st, 2012.
The inaugural volume of Emergency INDEX was published in March 2012. It includes 249 performances from 27 different countries and a comprehensive index of key terms. It is available at discerning bookstores, Small Press Distribution, Unbound and directly from the publisher, Ugly Duckling Presse.
