Openwork is a peer-reviewed journal that publishes research into experimental music, art, and scholarship. Interdisciplinary in scope, our journal promotes new modes of interaction between scholars and practitioners whose work critically re-listens through and across boundaries and constraints.

For our second issue, we seek artwork and articles exploring the concepts of ‘pre-’ and ‘post-’, critically engaging with the established and overlooked boundaries of these temporal markers and reimagining conventional histories, materialities, and subjectivities. We are particularly interested in contributions that engage with themes including musical memory, the Global South, temporalities of performance, narratives of pre-/-post digital, and the Anthropocene.

We favor submissions from scholars, creative practitioners, activists, and curators whose work may not fit into traditional publishing settings. In addition, we are experimenting with a new form of peer review that is open and dialogical. We thus seek contributions that both solicit inquiry and reflect the conclusions of an in-depth study.

All proposals should be sent to – [email protected]. The proposal deadline is January 29th 2024.
