Contemporary Art Theory

This programme encourages creative, holistic, and practicable knowledge of this increasingly polymathic field, grounding practical schooling in criticism, artwriting and curating in knowledge of key histories and theories of contemporary art. The programme addresses issues raised by the practices of contemporary art, criticism and curating as a means of encouraging students to contribute both critically and practically. Students of this programme conduct research in relation to a broad range of creative, cultural and historical contexts in ways that are speculative, writerly, philosophical, organisational, social and economic; students apply aesthetics, art theory and criticism, art historiography, anthropology, cultural geography and critical theory to engage with contemporary art's variety of media, technologies, images, artefacts, tactics, texts, cultural contexts and professional practices.
