Call for Submissions to Bleen Zine Issue 1: STACKS

Bleen is a bi-annual magazine focused on perception and the continuous processes we undertake to understand ourselves and the world, the intricate systems we create in order to live, the systems we find ourselves in which have been created for us.

The STACKS issue hones in on the man-made structures and rules within which we operate. From architecture to social housing and beyond to heritage and psychogeography - this issue aims to examine the world as we made it.

All forms of visual or written communication will be considered - our priority is to feature works which explore the topic of the issue!

“Animals” International Call - Art & Literature Journal - Deadline October 31, 2020

| Theme:

Animals are critical to our existence. Sometimes they are covered in fur; however, the diverse animal kingdom ranges from sponges to insects to whales. For ages, people have relied on animals for nourishment, transportation and labour support. They have a long history in art and mythology. Some of us have animal phobias. Pets bring us companionship, joy and healing. Wild animals awe us. We perceive characteristics in animals, such as the wise owl and the sneaky rat. People sometimes behave in ways described as animalistic. Share your literal, abstract or in-between concepts of ANIMALS.
