Open Call "With water in your mouth" for all art forms // Novelty Magazine
To have water in one's mouth is more than just to salivate - it's to hold life, in its whole, inside you. Water commonly signifies life and natural cycles, as well as it serves as gateway to hell or afterlife. And the chosen vessel is the mouth - one of the noblest organ of expression. It's through the mouth you shout, speak, sing or puke.

To have water in one’s mouth is indeed to express hunger and to desire a delicious food, but it's also much more: it's to express desire and pleasure with your whole body; it's to envy or be uncontrollably nauseated; it's to express, beyond control, all life's emotions.

In our fourth issue, we want to know what makes your mouth water and your imagination overflow. From our visceral relationship with food, to our experience of temptation, desire and pleasure; from our obsessiveness and anxiety, to our froths and tears; as always we invite you to explore this theme to its boundaries.

Novelty is a quarterly online magazine interested in fresh perspectives on unconventional themes. Each issue focuses on an unusual theme, exploring it through essays, articles, columns, fiction, photography, music, illustration, visual arts, video and animation.
Novelty is launching an Open Call to all art forms.

As always, we are open to all interpretations of the theme and means of expressing them.The aim is to challenge collaborators to delve into the topic by looking at it with fresh eyes, offering a personal perspective. Like your regular conversations with friends – we go into a topic and we never know where it will end up.
