Decorating Dissidence: Call for Submissions – Essays, Reviews, Poetry, Visual Arts

Decorating Dissidence, an online journal published every six weeks, explores the political, aesthetic and conceptual qualities of craft and the decorative, from modernist experimentation in the early twentieth-century to contemporary practices today.

– Articles considering the lasting legacies of marginalised women artists,
– Interviews with activists, academics and artists.
– Reviews of books, papers, or other events.
– Creative writing and poetry.
