CALL OUT - Framework Issue #39 touched

The call out is open for submissions to Framework's new issue: touched.


Formstack for SubmissionsFacebook Event
  • Creative

Touched by connecting, thinking, feeling, collaborating. Touched by friendship, love: platonic, erotic, filial, or all at once. Reaching towards touching desire and its triangulations. Eros, and what is bittersweet. Obsession: with anything! Kylie Minogue breathing “oh my god, touch me right there.” Abstracting touch, and its marks and residues. 


Submissions could respond to:


How do we mediate touch in the gallery, or at a performance? 

How does art touch us?

How can we write touch, or read it? 

What does a practice exploring touch look like? 

How can we touch through time, or objects, or text? 



Submissions could take the form of:

  • Critical essay
  • Exhibition, text, or performance review
  • Lyric essay
  • Speculative fabulation
  • Creative non-fiction
  • Lists
  • Letters
  • Podcast
  • Interview 
  • Sound work
  • Scene report
  • Dialogue
  • Screenplay
  • Interactive text work
