Call For Papers


"What happened, has not happened: thus spoke patience, that the end might not be hurried." Maurice Blanchot, The Writing of The Disaster

The catastrophe takes care of everything: from Greek tragedy to sci-fi, from ethics to (an)aesthetics, from architecture to game theory, from opera to snuff. Static 7 aims to reconstruct the contradictions and oppositions of the catastrophic narrative, which is peripheral yet at the centre of all things, consigned to the past and always to be reinstated.

Static 7 intends to pace the epistemic disaster zone, reading its debris through contributions which explore the notion of catastrophe in literature, architecture, art, politics, science, music and economics, drawing on sources as diverse as Aeschylus and Virilio, Kant and Beckett, financial risk analysis and nuclear reactor meltdown.

The submission deadline is 1 April 2008. Please send your queries and submissions to


Static is the online journal of the London Consortium, a unique collaboration between the Architectural Association, Birkbeck College, the Institute of Contemporary Arts, the Science Museum, and Tate.

We welcome a broad range of written, visual and digital submissions. Please contact the editors at the email addresses given for submission guidelines and further information.
