OVER Journal is a new international publication from PhotoIreland that proposes its readers a more wholesome, honest, and critical observation and enjoyment of lens-based, contemporary practices, with visual culture and critical thinking at its core.
Discover works by the Irish FUTURES Artists 2020 Becks Butler, Garry Loughlin, Mark McGuinness, Shia Conlon, and Vera Ryklova – whose work makes the cover.
The journal presents other three FUTURES artists; it features a new body of work by Teresa Eng, and a review of Eva Kreuger and Yvette Monahan’s practice, as Amelie Rose, current Project Coordinator of FOAM, reflects on their similarities and influences.
Find also works by Heather Agyepong, David Farrell, and a closing note by the Guerrilla Girls.
In addition, contributors to the first issue of the journal investigate the role of criticism, museology, and more, provoking conversations around topics regarding contemporary practices and how these are influenced by our current environments and society.
