OVER Journal issue 2 will launch as part of PhotoIreland Festival at 6pm on Thursday 29 July via Zoom. Want to join the launch? Book your place for free here.
A project by PhotoIreland, OVER Journal launched its first issue in July 2020, and it has enjoyed a growing interest reaching rapidly all corners of the global market, from Zurich to Los Angeles. The publication, billed as 'The Critical Journal of Photography and Visual Culture for the 21st century', is co-edited by Aidan Kelly Murphy, Julia Gelezova, and Ángel Luis González, and is currently the only photography publication in Ireland, produced with the generous support of the Arts Council of Ireland.
For its second issue, the editors have worked with writers and thinkers Julie Chun, Anna Ehrenstein, Orla Fitzpatrick, Yvette Hamilton, Camille Lévêque, Sue Rainsford, Rashi Rajguru, Kwasi Ohene-Ayeh, Duncan Wooldridge. In addition, a succulent and eclectic selection of practices manifests through the works of Hoda Afshar, Lewis Bush, Jean Curran, Irene Antonia Diane Reece, Audrey Gillespie, Kelvin Haizel, Iris Hassid, Federica Landi, Roberto Tondopó, and Bindi Vora.
At the event, the editors will launch a brand new website, designed to feature unique and expanded content: a platform to engage in the conversations that need to be had around art practices. The event is free and will be joined by some of the contributors.
OVER journal is a periodical publication and online platform that proposes its readers a more wholesome, honest, and critical observation and enjoyment of Photography. Publishing commissioned texts and artworks alongside interviews and opinion pieces, it aims to create the ideal channel for an open and global discussion about the context in which the discipline sits, as well as about the output of artists, exhibiting venues, and publishing houses.
OVER journal critically focuses on aspects often overlooked that affect the discipline, zooming out to observe the whole scene, to analyse what exactly is happening, what power relationships are at play. It is about preventing the repetition of obsolete and flawed structures, as much as highlighting the work of those who constructively are expanding what we still call Photography into new horizons. More than a portfolio magazine, it is a space for reflection on new practices, new ways of thinking, shining a light wherever needed.
