publication collecting the best new international writing on and about
artists' film and video, published by LUX, London and Light Industry, New
Inspired by Live Art Development
*Live Art Almanac*, *Artists' Film and Video: An Anthology of New

artists' moving image
in all of its forms - including but not limited to essays, interviews,
reviews, news stories, obituaries, commentaries, artists' writings,
manifestos, letters, emails, rants, etc. The publication aims to be
non-partisan in its approach, capturing the breadth and diversity of
perspectives in this area of practice.
We are seeking submissions and recommendations for material now. What have
you seen in the last two years (2008-2009) that you feel has captured or
reflected on issues and debates which have currency in contemporary artists'
film and video? We are primarily looking for writing that has been published
or circulated in the past two years, but will consider
unpublished/undistributed writing as well. What is important is that the
pieces be thoughtful, engaging contributions to discourse in this area. We
are interested in things you have read, but also that you have written, the
only limit is that texts should be under 5,000 words in length. Although the
publication will be in English, we are also interested in texts in
The collection will be a text-only print-on-demand book, and it will be sold
at cost-price (to cover printing and distribution). We are therefore unable
to pay fees for contributions. The goal is ultimately to disseminate
information and promote new writing and writers.
The selection for *Artists' Film and Video: An Anthology of New
Writing*will be be made jointly by LUX, London and Light Industry, New
York, and the
book will be published in Summer 2010.
