#ACCUMULATOR_PLUS: call for submissions

Hannah Sawtell calls for contributions for the next edition of The Happy Hypocrite

London based artist Hannah Sawtell is set to guest edit the next edition of the biannual arts journal The Happy Hypocrite. Called #ACCUMULATOR_PLUS, the journal will be published as both a book and a radio show. I have proposed that we make this issue different,” explains Sawtell, “I am asking for writing (as usual) for their printed publication... but my request for this year is to also make a callout for sound, which will be made into a radio programme, performed live by myself after the publication is completed.”

As part of her callout for submissions, Sawtell is offering up a stream of hashtags and inviting applicants to respond in the form of sound or text. The hashtags on offer—some already used by Sawtell in her exhibition at New York New Museum in 2014—include: #IMAGEOBJECTSKIN #NASCENTSURPLUS #DECELERATEDAFFECT #DIALECTICADDICTION #EXTREMEWORKPLEASURE

This is the ninth edition of The Happy Hypocrite, which will be published by Book Works in September 2016 and then broadcast online as a radio show. Deadline for subsmissions is 1 February 2016. You can find out more at the Book Works website.
