12-Pages Online Project Space Call for Submissions - Issue 8

Roger Hiorns, Untitled, 2008. Atomised passenger aircraft engine.

TBC Artists' Collective has now announced an open call for submissions to its July 12-Pages Online Project Space. Applicants are asked to make a new artwork in response to the theme of 'ALTERED STATES'.

The Avant-Garde was a crucial force in transforming the cultural landscape of Europe after the bloodshed of the First World War. Cultural production became an important element of social and political transformation. Art became a way to question and protest against the established powers. The artist became a revolutionary figure. Today artistic production is synonymous with  the world's most dominant ideology: capitalism. The artist is tied to the art world and the art market.

Taking inspiration from the events of the Arab spring and the reaction to the public spending cuts in the UK this year, July’s 12-Pages brief aims to focus on artistic practice as a catalyst for change. However, it is important to make clear that the work submitted does not have to be overtly based on political struggle. Work produced should evidence the process of art making as an agent of change, which leads to an altered state. This should be interpreted in the widest possible sense. As far as possible drawing should be evidenced in the final outcome.

  • Send all images as JPEGs, minimum 72-maximum 150dpi, min 400Kb, max 1Mb
  • Send all text documents as .doc, unless presented as a 'drawing' or 'image' in PDF format. Limit  body text to 3,000 words
  • If the contributing artist has a clear idea as to how their word should be displayed, the desired      layout should be submitted as a PDF. The editor's decision is final.
  • Short artist biography of no more than 200 words

  • 12-Pages does not accept previously published material, and does not expect works commissioned for 12-Pages to be used elsewhere before publication of the issue concerned
  • The contributing artist retains full rights to their work. If the artist wishes to reprint or publish the work in future, TBC Artists' Collective asks that the relevant issue of 12-Pages be credited
  • Due to the high volume of submissions received, TBC Artists' Collective can only enter into correspondence with those whose works have been accepted, and cannot give critical feedback on submissions.
  • Editor-in-chief has final say over all editorial decisions.

All responses should be sent to by midnight on 30th June 2011 to be considered for inclusion in the 12-Pages Online Project Space. ALTERED STATES will be published online in July 2011.
