The Editorial page has been created with the aim of giving space to artistic and curatorial practices that employ queer and feminist methodologies to explore gender, sexuality, sex, race, bodies, (dis)ability, ecology, pleasure, desire and much more.

We encourage the expression of diversity in all artistic forms, with an attention towards performative and participatory work. We intend to collect written and visual counter-narratives with a concentration on censored, erased, forgotten, radical or under-represented practices, artists, writers or collectives. We are particularly interested in work which is made with diverse spaces and broader publics in mind; work which might not fit comfortably or is excluded from the commercial art world, museums and leading institutions; work which will, as a result, seek the appropriate press channels.

This newly created section will offer articles, features, reviews, interviews, visual stories and more, for an alternative reading of contemporary artistic manifestations. Our aim is to critically engage with art practices and artists in a way that navigates between the domains of theory to journalism and even auto/biographical work.

If you would like to propose an editorial piece, don't hesitate to get in touch at editorial@cuntemporary.org
