With the written word, being-a.live interrogates what it is to be alive in relation to what liveness is. The journal seeks toward challenging notions of performance and performativity through expanded discourse. being-a.live does not orient itself around writing about any particular, defined community of artists or of the art scenes of any particular place. This journal instead seeks to clarify the scope of the operation of liveness methodologically. The approach will change to facilitate the development of this journal, shifting and changing as the nature of the inquiry shifts.
The methods employed by being-a.live will consistently be presented as a single requirement for submissions. Refer to the below list for the current submission requirement:
- All being.a-live writings will be performance reviews. All such reviews will be negative reviews.
