Course Summary

This graduate programme is geared towards advancing the grounds for different forms of practice, from artistic to infrastructural. While practice manifests differently, it always entails research and always contributes to knowledge.

The MPhil program in Advanced Practices responds to the growing importance of practice driven research within knowledge production, public exhibiting, and cultural organising.

This program will provide you with an opportunity for your own work to engage with the widening horizons of new practices. It will also enable you to invent methodologies, reframe urgencies, and reimagine the contexts for work.

Building on theoretical grounding, the program offers an opportunity to bring together different sources of knowledge, methodologies, and models of making public.

Concepts animating our work on the program:

Choreo politics
Anthropology as Cultural Critique
Cultural Metabolics
Curatorial Knowledges
The Exhibitionary Matrix
The Intrusions of Nature
Race and Digital Ecologies
Practice Epistemology
Spectral Infrastructures.

This is practice-driven and research-based programme which can incorporate projects in progress, collaborations with organisations, and platforms. It can also be an opportunity to rethink the circulation and meaning of how/to whom work is communicated, and to put forms of transdisciplinarity into practice. Seminars are taught six times a year, encouraging those working in the field to be able to maintain their work. Participants are artists, curators, organisers, researchers, and activists.

The Goldsmiths Program in Advanced Practices is linked to the European Forum for Advanced Practices (funded by the COST.eu action).

Entry requirements

You should normally have (or expect to be awarded) a taught Masters in a relevant subject area. You might also be considered for some programmes if you aren’t a graduate or your degree is in an unrelated field, but have relevant experience and can show that you have the ability to work at postgraduate level. We welcome applicants from all disciplines, as well as those with a background in art and curatorial practices who want to engage with the expanded field. Such background can be a relevant degree or cumulative practice. The program enables exchanging knowledges and experiences between multiple fields contributing to the advancing of practices.
