Call for Papers: Fragment. archimaera #10

For the upcoming issue of the open access journal archimaera, the editorial board invites you to engage with the thematic field of the fragmentary in architecture.
The problem of a direct analogy between image and meaning in the sense of a social condition understood as fragmentary, could validate the relevance of the discourse of the fragmentary. Is the fragment in architecture merely a visual or also a spatial phenomenon? Which theoretical narratives or cultural-social phenomena are latent or manifest in spatial arrangements of a fragmentary rank? How does the concept of the fragment behave as an instrument of critique in architecture? Which functions do discourses on the fragmentary assume in the fields of historical preservation and cultural heritage or in the field of archaeology? How do these discourses relate to the presence and significance of cultural heritage?
The full call for papers is available on the journal website and can be downloaded here.
Please send your proposals as an exposé of max. 2.500 characters or as a sample of work by 30 April 2021 to archimaera # 10 fragment@archimaera.de
The editorial board will evaluate submitted proposals until 31 May 2021. Accepted exposés have to be submitted as full papers until 31 August 2021.
