Submissions are closed for contributions to our 2012 edition. Stay tuned for INDEX 2013!
Emergency INDEX is now accepting submissions of performance documentation for its forthcoming volume. Deadline for contributions is December 31st, 2012!
INDEX is an annual print publication of performance documented in the words of its creators. It provides a cutting-edge view of the ways in which performance is used in dance, theater, poetry, music, visual art, political activism, scientific research, advertising, terrorism, and elsewhere. INDEX is radically inclusive, rigorously edited, and thoroughly indexed. If you call what you make performance, you can submit a description of a project made in 2012 for the next volume. Please see guidelines at www.emergencyindex.com and check out our facebook page for performance-related news, discussions, and opportunities.
Info about the project:
Every year, Emergency INDEX invites authors to document performances they made in the previous year. By including performances regardless of their country of origin, their genre, aims, or popularity, INDEX is the only print publication of its kind, revealing a breathtaking variety of practices used in performance work as it actually exists today. For readers, INDEX offers a cutting edge view of performance as it is used in dance, theater, music, visual art, political activism, scientific research, poetry, advertising, terrorism, and other disciplines. For artists, INDEX provides an opportunity to document the most important aspects of new work, without the need for spin or salesmanship. For anyone interested in contemporary performance, INDEX is required reading.
