Virtual identities asks contributors: Do you have virtual identity? What makes it virtual? Is your avatar part of who you are? Are the spaces of online role-play realities or fictions? What does it mean to have a personal aesthetic? Do you project your aesthetic online? Does your smartphone know you? Does it know itself? What's the difference between programming and consciousness? This is the second instalment of our “Virtual Existence” 2015/16 publishing cycle, where we examine separate facets of this theme through “Virtual Bodies,” “Virtual Identities,” and “Virtual Desires.”

We accept submissions in all forms, with a preference for essays, interviews, exhibition reviews, book reviews, artist interventions, creative nonfiction, fiction, and poetry. Direct all submissions, project proposals or inquiries to thecritnewspaper@gmail.com.
