RECLAIM the MIND Open Call for Submissions Friction Research Issue #4

Open Call for Submissions
Friction Research Issue #4, Spring 2011

“When the possibility of expressing social reform vanishes, time has come to change our minds. [A.A. 2010]”

Reclaim the Mind is a transmedial collaborative initiative exploring empty spots in the human mind by:

– occupying the area between ‘reality’ and ‘truth’, – re-using forgotten (collective) memory-spaces, – connecting mental processes with physical spaces, – rewriting, tearing apart, scratching and stretching our lived environment in an effort to liberate our ursurpated sensibilities.

Reclaim the Mind reclaims the idiomatic resources, abused by the Creative Industries and jeopardized by a majority of National Governments, and will intentionally break seperations between established cultural and political domains.

Reclaim the Mind aims to protect the incomprehensible treasure of mankind, threatened by:

Censorship, Territorization, Mapping, Propaganda, Misconduct, Betrayal, Charlatanism, Mediocracy, Education, Orthodoxy, Cultural Lobotomization,
Zombie State Politics
