The term “minimal” describes what reaches its lowest degree, while “maximal” indicates the highest value, the maximum level. However, does “minimal” imply an erasure, or extreme purity? In the light of this, should one consider what is maximal as an excess or an attempt to exhaust a subject? Depending on the point of view, the concepts of minimal and maximal complement, oppose, attract or respond to each other. What links can then be created between these two antinomic terms? Seen through the prism of architecture and design, this dual subject tells us something about hierarchy, opposites, passion and excesses, and more generally about contemporary creative practices. For its sixth issue, Pli challenges you to reflect on how, from this antithesis, a rich and multidisciplinary research could be born.

Like every year, we want to offer everyone the opportunity to be published in Pli, without excluding those who have little or no experience in writing. Whether they are those of a professional, a student or a theorist, we are interested in all your points of view.
The selected authors will benefit from a two-month editorial support aimed at producing a text of 2,000 to 3,500 characters, which will then be published in Pli 06. This year, we hope to be once again surprised, amazed and stunned by your ideas, your paths and your positions. We are looking forward to reading you !

If writing is not your preferred medium but you would still like to contribute to Pli, we are also calling for spontaneous collaborations. We think of Pli as a territory of experimentation destined to be invested through collaborative projects, which can take various forms (graphic, editorial, performative, curatorial, etc.) and be designed for various destinations (print or online publishing, exhibition, etc.).
