GAMBA Magazine is a provocative literary journal created to inspire passion and thoughtfulness outside the politics of mainstream publication. We are looking for writers and visual artists to submit work that pushes the limits of their craft and adds to an exhibition of progressive ideas from all over the world. Every issue is designed around a specific theme so artists will create new work directly connected to that theme. Please see details below:
The theme for Issue #8 is: De-evolution - the idea that a species is actually evolving backwards.
We are looking for writers and artists willing to explore ideas of devolution and evolution and how environment dictates what is strong, beneficial or necessary to keep a continuation. In that continuation are there things moving forward and backwards at the same time? What things are relevant now that have also been relevant in the past? Why are these things still relevant? Why haven't we evolved in some areas but evolved so rapidly in others? Think about devolution socially, environmentally, politically, linguistically, spiritually - how are we evolving or returning to times past trying to recreate what has already happened?
