Art Keywords[1]

Collaborative project by [Submission form] [Notes]

Growing, collaborative encyclopedic dictionary that approaches central concepts, keywords, terms, and definitions related to the 21st century art.

The project attempts to create a place for the data and definition exchange where the combination of theoretical, mediative and artistic (poetic) definitions comes from the need to establish different approaches to art definition.

We ask for artists, curators, critics and cultural mediators to send us terms and concepts relevant to their own approach to art, defined textually (definitions, articles, references, etc.) or through a media item (image, video, sound etc.)

The project operates on ongoing basis.
