Open Call "Back to the Basics" for all art forms // Novelty Magazine
This is where it all begins. We're going back to the roots, the roots of ourselves and our stories. Back to tiny beginnings, as ideas and identities pushed up through the soil towards the sun to thrive and become something big. A rejuvenating regeneration follows a certain decay: refocus is achieved by stripping back the superfluous.

We continually adapt in order to survive, not only as species but also as individuals - remaining stagnant would be fatal. The overflow of this summer's yield nestles into the earth; the flora and fauna surrounding us now is the germination of life to come.

Novelty's 9th issue is dedicated to the theme "Back to the basics". To understand where we’re going, we need to rediscover our roots: the soil and society that shaped us and sent us out into the world. This issue is about examining our origins, sensing our interconnectedness and creating harmony in order to thrive.

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.
