>FeedBack Open Call
>FeedBack continues with the idea of creating 
>discursive spheres between audience, curators 
>and artists and concentrates the next issue on 
>the idea of participatory projects and 
>particularly on the experiences of those 
>participating in the making and realisation of 
>these projects.
>Feedback 04 aims to create a unique archive of 
>documents, statements, interviews, arguments and 
>conflicts of people participating or commenting 
>on such projects.
>The results will constitute the publication 
>which could be read as an archive per se, a 
>book, a narrative, an artwork, a tool for 
>investigating such projects, a manifesto--a 
>multifaceted source.
>FeedBack team would like to send an open call 
>for submissions, which you are welcome to 
>forward to your own mailing list. We are seeking 
>to gather relevant material such as texts, 
>images, reports, web links, art projects; aiming 
>to group together diverse contributions.
>This call refers to everyone who works or 
>researches on issues of participation in art, 
>relationality, public art, community based 
>projects: artists, curators, theorists and other 
>participants, as well as and especially, people 
>who have participated in the making or acting of 
>such projects.
>  The aim of this issue is to collect the views 
>of different parties who are directly involved 
>or interested in such projects, to give an 
>emphasis to a critical and political approach of 
>such (participatory) practices and highlight a 
>diversity which hopefully will be reflected by 
>the range of positions of the various parties 
>involved in collaborations. Conflicts, clash of 
>interests and exclusivity are equal with 
>inclusiveness and mutual agreement.  
>If you would like to publish your contribution 
>in the next issue, FeedBack 04 please express 
>interest by email and submit by until 31 May
