SSAF–AAA Research Grant for Histories of Ideas, Art Writing, and Visual Culture 2018

The Sher-Gil Sundaram Arts Foundation (SSAF) and Asia Art Archive (AAA) in India are pleased to announce the SSAF–AAA Research Grant for Histories of Ideas, Art Writing, and Visual Culture 2018. This grant, which is the first collaboration between SSAF and AAA in India, emerges from AAA’s ongoing engagement with histories of art writing, and its initiatives to map, compile, translate, and republish texts from various contexts. This grant is in line with SSAF’s commitment to work with cross-disciplinary initiatives addressing the oppressed and the marginalised, and alternative and heterodox practices in the arts and in intellectual work.

Grant Focus for 2018
We invite proposals that interrogate how periodicals—journals, magazines, zines, etc.—contributed to the cultural politics of a historical moment, and the role of visuals therein. Proposals that focus on how the visual arts—including cover art, illustrations, cartoons, centre spreads, photographs, portfolios, and reproductions of artworks—were positioned in periodicals in different languages or regions will be given preference.

Areas of research may include:
1. One or more social movements that extended to periodicals and mapping the place of visuals therein
2. An interesting moment in the life of one or more periodicals, and the role of visuals therein
3.The travel of ideas on arts, aesthetics, and cultural practices within periodicals, and as they occurred via translation between languages
4. The intellectual contribution of one or more writers, editors, or publishers who played an important role in the evolution of a periodical, and in the positioning of visual arts within it
5. Debates on concepts and categories stemming from regional languages reflected in periodicals
