Togetherism: Call for Submissions

This fall, Lumpen Magazine will release a publication as part of the “Togetherism” programming season. The publication, too, is a collaborative and experimental project. 

Togetherism examines creative experiments with horizontal, collective art-making and organizing. Work done in groups provokes us to consider other social forms than the established. Group work challenges conventions of value and authority in art and society. 

We are seeking submissions from group members (current or former), organizers and thinkers that can address the following questions: 

How can collaborative work be liberating, radical, nurturing, or a form of coping and survival?

What does it mean to work collectively in the time of isolated, individualized labor in the arts and beyond? Why do groups come together, and how do they fall apart?

Everyone and all formats are encouraged. For more prompts or information please reach out to Marina Resende ( or Nora Catlin ( 

Please send a proposal through the submission form by Friday, August 9.

Final submissions are due August 1, 2019.
