FMIX: CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS
The formulation and production of architecture is constantly leveled against its past, present, and future authorities, that forever rewrite the rulebook. Fresh Meat Journal—the compendium of architectural fictions, judgments, and opinions—invites submissions regarding the Fake and the Radical as two forms that hide, react, reject, conceal, and distort the rules of the day.
By exploring fictions and facts through ideas of speculation within the field of architecture, and by projecting great shifts in its momentum, the Fake and the Radical deal with authority in a multitude of ways, often combining and/or juxtaposing as they struggle to cope with the overarching power and image of previous establishments.
The Fake, relying on previous knowledge to fabricate itself, can be a form of re-conceptualization through a collection of fragments from past, present or future models. The Radical, on the other hand, gains strength from rejection and the extent to which its ideals are seen as removed from its contemporary position.
Fresh Meat Issue IX invites professional, academics, students, renegades, show-ponies and divas to question and contradict the Fake and the Radical in the realm of architecture. We welcome questions and forecasts that look at how the copy, the anonymous, the pseudonym, the moral, and the parody help analyze the Fake and the Radical.
Do the Fake or the Radical exist without authority, and as a result what is the role of authority in today’s architecture?
What are the morals that must be considered in the Fake and the Radical, if any?
How do the anonymous and the pseudonym function with the rules of authority?
Your submission to FMIX must be submitted to a specific category: Writing or Project. Footnote text and footnote imagery are discluded from the maximum requirements listed, but must be cited and submitted along with the work via the Source Information sheet included with the Call for Submissions.
