prism #26: BODY // Submission call is now open // Deadline: 20 October 2017


prism is super excited to announce a submission call for our upcoming issue of e-magazine: BODY issue. The human body, in all its ability to express what's hidden underneath and to communicate it visually, is certainly the most photographed subject since the discovery of light-painting. So, what does it take for human flesh to be appreciated as art and used as a tool of artistic expression? Is body mostly seen as just a shape or pure form, or can it be seen as a tool of wider studies, that of social nature for instance? Finally, does the veil of controversy still applies to bodily form or is it finally fully removed in contemporary art? The main question we would like to surround the upcoming issue with is: How do we see bodies, what do they represent and what they can teach us about the way we express ourselves?

To answer this, we will approach selected artists and also carefully collect material from contemporary photographers to create a cross section illustration of our studies on this broad matter. 

The final selection will be sealed with 12 names.
