Plot’s new submission section is launching with three drafts, all of which have been chosen around the topic "Performing Work." Readers across fields are invited to submit texts that consider the image set's potential narratives.
We are taking a short break and will be back at the end of August with a new contribution.
With Donald Trump as the new president of the United States, and a movement under way which dismisses critical thinking as “elitist,” Plot strengthens its resolve to be a platform that brings together intellectuals, artists, scientists, academics, educators and others to share ideas, to inspire each other, and to use the analysis of images as a means to fight propaganda, challenge ideologies, and push for the advancement of visual literacy.
Plot is proud to announce that Matt Garite has joined its team as an associate editor. Holding a doctorate in English Literature from the University of Buffalo and with a strong interest in critical theory and political philosophy, Matt will be writing and commissioning contributions on a regular basis.
We are excited to announce that from now on Plot will publish new contributions on a regular basis. If you don’t want to miss the new line up for 2016, subscribe to Plot's mailing list
Faced with an ever-proliferating stream of images on our digital devices and often in addictively gratifying formats that encourage mindless consumption, the mission of Plot is one of prolonged contemplation and attention to detail whereby images can be reactivated within potent networks of conceptual and experimental relations.
Plot will work with contributors from a wide range of disciplines, starting with its initial release featuring Becca Albee, Alison Burstein, David Court, Andrew Finegold, Matt Garite, Wiebke Grösch & Frank Metzger, Oliver Husain, Claudia Weber, Kirsten Weiss, and Guy Witzel.
