The purpose of the EE -Experimental and Emerging Art- is to give a rapid response to the emergent contributions of what art can be. The works and tendencies we present are major additions to the field of emerging aesthetics. EE focuses on experimental art projects – the stuff that somehow stretches and challenges established notions of what art is. One of our criteria for giving coverage is whether the topic at hand has been made or conceived within the last decade? We believe the field of art is -and should be- in a constant flux, challenging the otherwise market driven understanding of art. If innovation always comes from the periphery, then EE will also move at the rim of aesthetics. We also defend our right to sometimes fall into its core. And at other times out of it.
EE’s format is multiple; part magazine, newszine, part website and it spans across several media formats. While the printed issue is for sale, EE is also freely downloadable online at eejournal.no as a PDF based magazine. Often EE articles are more visual than textual, but online you will find additional background material such as texts, original sound files, video, photos and other Zeitgeist documents to our coverage.
EE is In Medias Res and we believe our magazine to be a necessary publication both to be informed about and document a field in constant and rapid change. EE endorses these fluctuations in thinking & doing and see them as essential components of the experimental and expanding field of art. One of EE’s main purposes is to support the interesting, the subversive, the abject, the striking but also intriguing, wondrous and the beautiful in the ongoing human project of making art. Whatever art might be or become.
