SWARM MAG started and continues as a platform for showcasing and supporting all things fresh, uncanny, and exciting so fashion designers, photographers, painters or other visual artists, performers, writers, conceptualists, musicians and many more are heartily invited to share their work with us.
We’re excited to announce SWARM Mag’s fourth thematic OPEN CALL for 2023.
Theme: THE ROOTS OF TASTE
With the first tendrils of autumn, we are once again on the lookout for submissions and contributions to our established art & culture online magazine.
Just like most of the wild plant and fungi world, we too feel the need to burrow, relax and reflect when the nights start to grow longer. We delve under the surface, look for the core of what truly sustains us, so we can survive the winter. Our new theme explores the profound connection between art and the fundamental elements of nature. For us, roots symbolise not only the physical anchors seeking sustenance but also the deep-seated ideas and concepts that underlie artistic expression. Embracing the beauty in the unseen and what is considered “ugliness”. We seek to connect with the basic colours and components of the often overlooked soil. Sow the seeds of aesthetic directions and wait for them to sprout. To shape the clay of our ideas like a golem into a unified, functional whole, emphasizing common ground and shared experiences as vital elements for artistic growth and survival.
If these words and concepts reflect your art, we are looking just for you and your submissions.
