OPEN CALL: FOR PLANETARY GOVERNANCE
For Planetary Governance is an open call for papers, projects, and research related to the topics of planetary governance, and how they are now and will continue to affect urban life, systems, and futures. This collaboration between The Terraforming and Strelka Mag intends to solicit original and provocative outcomes that engage with the context of a (perhaps as-of-yet non-existent) “governance” in multiple guises—legal, political, cognitive, computational, linguistic, protocological, biological etc.—and, for this and through it, our capacity for collective autocomposition. This initiative will feature ideas and projects that are surprising, pragmatic, unconventional, and honest—even if productively controversial. We presume that the work that most directly confronts the implications of today is full of risk. Submit your proposal through this form by April 10. Selected participants will receive an honorarium of €150 for their pieces.These themes below are prompts, not instructions or strict categories for potential submission. We invite departures from these starting points. The inquires for other geopolities are not against governmentality but on behalf of its reimagining, not the end of history but a long-delayed synthetic beginning.
