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/PhD programme 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
