How can we imagine collectivity in the present moment, after new media, when connection is often mediated down to 140 characters, coalitions are negotiated through Facebook and embodied occupations of the streets have reinvigorated people around the world? The Convergence 2013 Curatorial Committee,Zach Blas, Micha Cárdenas and Dino Dinco, invite artists to propose performances within the theme and practice of “Experimental Collectivities.” We are particularly interested in exploring methods that will collectively produce and critique systems of knowledge/power.

The 2nd Hemi GSI Convergence will be an exploratory space of lateral collaboration and alternative pedagogy among scholars, artists and activists from throughout the Americas. Convergence 2013 will be jointly hosted by the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) and the University of Southern California (USC) on October 11–13, 2013. Hemi GSI will also plan an optional pre-Convergence hosted by University of California, San Diego (UCSD) in La Jolla and Tijuana on October 10th, 2013.

The performance nights at Convergence 2013 will take place on and off campus, in collaboration with local art galleries and can include performances in public space. The exact venues are still being determined.

Possible themes to be adressed include:
Visualizing Cultural Circuits
Tangible and Corporeal Imperialisms

Decolonial Feminism
Tourism, Reception and the Ethics of Visiting
Indigeneity, Memory and Praxis

Emergency INDEX

Deadline not specified

Artists are invited to contribute to Emergency INDEX, an annual print publication documenting performance in the words of its practitioners. INDEX seeks to include performances of all kinds, with a focus on the problems driving the work and the innovations used to address them. Keywords will be indexed, linking disparate works. In this way, INDEX will create a yearly compendium to define the state of performance through the multiplicity of contemporary practices, and give artists, audiences and scholars exposure to performance outside their circles. To document your performance on our pages, proceed to www.emergencyindex.com.
The Live Art Development Agency is a Partner Organization of Emergency INDEX.

Pleading in the Blood: The Art of Ron Athey

Deadline not specified

Your support is requested towards a major publication dedicated to the pioneering and influential performance artist, Ron Athey

This will be the first ever publication devoted to the work of Ron Athey, a central figure in the development of performance art since the 1980s. Edited by Dominic Johnson, Pleading in the Blood: The Art of Ron Athey will foreground the prescience of Athey’s work, exploring how his visceral, body-based practice foresaw and precipitated the central place afforded to the body in art and critical theory.

Pleading in the Blood will be co-published in 2012 by the Live Art Development Agency (UK) and The MIT Press (USA). The Agency and MIT Press have already raised two thirds of the publication’s budget. Your support will be a crucially needed step in meeting our collective vision for the book. Please follow this link for more information http://www.indiegogo.com/Pleading-in-the-Blood-The-Art-of-Ron-Athey Signed copies of the book and signed Ron Athey prints are available in return for donations.

Women & Performance: a journal of feminist theory
Call for Papers
Deadline: 1 Dec 2011

2013 will mark the thirtieth anniversary of the release of Lizzie Borden’s 1983 film Born in Flames, a dystopic imagining of a near-future United States that is ten years past a socialist revolution. Far from a leveling of inequality, this socialist experiment is rife with persistent forms of racial and gender inequality. Over the course of its ninety minutes, Born in Flames follows a range of working class and multi-racial feminist political projects —including street patrols, pirate radio stations, community organizing campaigns, labor strikes, guerilla warfare training, television station takeovers, and finally, in the closing shot of the film, a bombing. In tracing these projects, their overlaps as well as their contradictions, the film calls into question state-centered political utopias and foregrounds concerns about the persistence of sexism and racism in socialist practice and fantasy. Its genre-bending and visual grammar anticipated future experiments in narrative/documentary hybrids and remain surprising and affectively forceful today.

While Born in Flames received some attention from feminist film critics upon its release, the ways in which the film re-imagines feminist politics through queer, anti-racist, and (post)-Marxist politics have not been fully dealt with. More than a generation later, the political questions facing feminist, queer, and trans scholars and activists require exactly the kind of thinking produced and provoked by the film. For the special dossier, we would solicit pieces that focus on assessing the film’s significance and that historicize its critical reception. We would also seek essays that use the myriad issues raised by the film as launch pads for thinking Born in Flames along with other texts and cases; these issues would include state violence, political assassination, liberal reform, transnational anti-colonial solidarity, racial and gender subordination in Marxist theory and practice, queer and trans models of community organizing, armed struggle, media technologies, and feminist coalition-building.

Given its release during an important period of feminist revisioning of film theory, Born in Flames received limited but important attention from feminist film and media scholars, including pieces by Teresa de Lauretis (New German Critique, 1984) and Scott MacDonald (Feminist Studies, 1989), and a 1984 interview conducted by Anne Friedberg and published in the second issue of Women and Performance. Other than a consideration of Borden’s work in a 2000 book by Christina Lane, Born in Flames has been largely neglected both by film studies and by social and political theorists. With this special dossier, we seek to shed scholarly light on what remains a provocative and significant piece of experimental filmmaking. We also aim to put film and performance scholarship in explicit dialogue with political theory and social movement scholarship. Given Borden’s and the actors direct involvement in social movements, Born in Flames demands and requires such a cross-disciplinary consideration that foregrounds the co-articulation of media practice and political practice.

Women & Performance invites critical essay or short performance texts that examine these or other questions relevant to a critical discussion of Born in Flames. Essays should be no more than 10,000 words in length and adhere to the Chicago Manual of Style, 15th Edition.

Abstracts are welcome for review before the final deadline. Complete essays for consideration must be submitted by December 1, 2011.

Please send all work to guest editors Craig Willse and Dean Spade via email (MSWord attachment): cwillse@gmail.com and spaded@seattleu.edu.

Further submission guidelines may be found at http://www.womenandperformance.org/submission.html.
