How might writing generate art and art generate writing? In this hybrid space, images and words interact, shift and borrow from one another. WRITING & CONCEPTS challenges traditional approaches to writing and highlights new perspectives within contemporary practice.

WRITING & CONCEPTS takes its title from a critically-focused lecture series conceived by Jan van Schaik. It explores the many ways in which creative practitioners engage with writing as part of their artistic practices. With contributions from writers and artists including Maura Edmond, Nikos Papastergiadis, Agatha Gothe-Snape and Callum Morton among many others, this publication reflects on the 2017 lecture series. It is also a vital addition to A+A Publishing’s recently launched Documents Series. As its name suggests, the Documents Series engages with watershed moments in Australian art and writing through the collation of archival material, artworks, creative writing and contextual essays.
