Obieg issue 8

Obieg No. 8 Art & Literature: A Mongrels Guide, edited by The Book Lovers (Joanna Zielińska and David Maroto), presents a hybrid genre combining visual arts with literature in the form of the artists novel. The issues authors explore the area of impossibility connecting the two disciplines, discussing phenomena such as ficto-criticism, literature written by artists, or experimental forms of art criticism serving as a counterproposition to the standardised modes of writing about art.


We seek original and significant new research that also explores conceptual and analytical themes with potential resonance across fields and disciplines. So we kindly encourage you to contact us at
