New online journal exploring art practice and Christian theology, produced by Sarah White. First Edition now available. Open to submissions for Second Edition
The Agnoscis Journal has come from the friendship, practice, faith, discussion and disagreement of artists associated with Morphē Arts. The journal is an engagement with contemporary art theory and practice, and the philosophical and sociological foundations upon which it is built: but with a particular attention to unmasking the latent theology within this arena.
This journal is particularly concerned with the theological, as it refers to the Christian tradition and experience of faith, and seeks to engage with current art practice and criticism. Without disregarding their intellectual significance, our focus is intentionally not on art history or art made within the church. We are intent on expanding the vocabularies (and methodologies) that underpin the interdisciplinary conceptual project we are undertaking.
Without defining the parameters of the writing too much, the journal will primarily publish critical writing about the specific practices of contemporary artists, alongside research-based experimental writing which seeks to unveil the theological within contemporary art theory and practice.
The journal is published within the context of Morphē Arts, but the writing does not necessarily reflect the position of this organisation. Rather, it exists as a platform for the research, thinking and exploration of the writers and artists involved, and for the conversations and disagreements which arise between them.
Exploring how the process of improvisation, and the flow of call and response is weaved throughout life and art.
