Runway Australian Experimental Art is seeking artists’ and writers’ submissions for Issue #25 MONEY.

The recent boycott of the Biennale of Sydney sparked debate across the Sydney art world about the ethics of arts funding – both private and public. Similarly in London a war is being waged between activist groups and various English museums that have accepted funding from BHP Billiton. This issue of Runway asks contributors to engage with the moral and pragmatic complexity of funding for the arts, and to use recent events in this arena as a starting point for broader discussions of the relationship between art, politics and protest.

Some have argued that the art world iterates and is complicit in unethical systems. Claire Bishop,1 for example, has critiqued the ways in which participatory artforms are co-opted by government structures, while Alana Jelenik2 says that “neoliberal values permeate all areas of the contemporary art world, regardless of its financing or position within artworld hierarchy.” Her book This is not art draws a sharp distinction between protest and art, arguing that these two fields fulfil radically different social functions. However, as recent events show, the boundaries between art and process are constantly eroding and being redrawn. This issue of Runway will return to a longstanding struggle between art’s association with power and wealth (for example the Catholic church) and alternately the avant garde, protest and revolutionary art (for example pamphleteering, political posters and interventions of various kinds).

Runway is calling for proposals for written work in either short (up to 1000 words) or long form (up to 2000 words) or other forms (picture essays, video interviews, audio commentaries). We are also calling for artist submissions of projects either recently completed or in development that would be suited to a digital experience in some way, shape or form (up to 10 minutes video or sound, or 12 images). Written works can feature images and/or video, and visual works can also include supporting or explanatory text. All works should clearly address the theme of ‘MONEY’ and be focused on Australian artists, art cultures, art institutions, curatorial ideas and/or artworks. 

Depending on length of submission, writers will be paid between AUD$150 – $250 for a submission. Be aware, your work may be edited, but this is a collaborative process between the Editor and you. Artists will be paid AUD$200 to publish original submissions of new work or works in progress.
