call for zine submissions: VANITAS 

Vanitas is a style of Netherlandish painting that highlights the transitory nature of life and material goods. For this salon and accompanying zine, HAG invites performers, writers, and artists to investigate the relationship between the ephemeral, martyrdom, and objecthood. We are also interested in problematizing subject/object dialectics and feminist theory that posits the discursive work of feminism to be a simple crossing from the realm of the object to the realm of the subject, largely inspired by Karen Barad’s work on what she calls agential objects, and in the relationship between the ephemeral and femininity. In what ways is martyrdom, both literal (Joan of Arc) and non-literal (Francesca Woodman), coded feminine? WE ARE DEAD & YOU CAN BE TOO.

For the accompanying ZINE, we are looking for:
i. essays, poetry, texts of any kind; and
ii. collage, photography, drawing, images of any kind. Black and white submissions only, please.

Please send zine submissions to hagcollective (at) gmail (dot) com by August 16th, 2013.
