Please join us for Occupying the In-Between, a virtual conference that explores how to create collaborative generative spaces of care through activating non-conventional research methodologies and dissemination practices. This event is part of the Transmission series organized by the Mountain of Art Research (MARS) located at Goldsmiths’ College, University of London, and is generously funded by the CHASE research consortium.
If you are interested in attending, please register at the button below. Please provide us with your name, institutional affiliations if applicable, and a short statement about your research, or potential research interest and the possibilities of generative capacities. This statement should be no more than 50 words.
The Mountain of Art Research (MARs) is based in the Department of Art at Goldsmiths College and linked to the Art Research Programme. A bit like a research centre, except it’s a mountain, MARs supports and promotes the development of innovative art research across a range of art practices including - but not limited to - studio, curatorial, critical and art-writing, situated, participatory and interdisciplinary practice. Committed to rigorous formal experimentation, maverick conceptual exploration and socially-engaged articulation, MARs supports the singular development of practice with a political imperative; emphasises the material ‘stuff’ of art research as much as its speculative possibilities
As both platform and ethos, the aim of MARs is to challenge received ideas and habits; to promote new ways of thinking and being both in and out of this world.
Goldsmiths Art Research - MPhil/PhD
The Department of Art supports the development of art research in and through Fine Art, Curating, Art Writing and across disciplines. We consider all elements of the MPhil/PhD to be sites of rigorous experimentation and encourage researchers to develop research through processes of making, thinking, collaborating, investigating, experimenting, analysing and speculating.
CHASE brings together 9 leading institutions engaged in collaborative research activities including an AHRC doctoral training partnership. These are the Universities of East Anglia, Essex, Kent and Sussex, the Open University, The Courtauld Institute of Art, Goldsmiths, University of London, Birkbeck, University of London and SOAS, University of London.
It is central to our ethos that serious disciplinary research is interdisciplinary. Across the arts and humanities, we study periods, cultures and communities in which modern disciplinary boundaries simply did not and do not exist; equally, emergent or less-established fields of study require new forms of attention, practice and communication.
CHASE supports discipline-based projects, but also specialises in interdisciplinary research and research in emerging fields of study and creative practice. Our research and training environment encourages doctoral researchers to develop new methodologies. In addition, our network of partnerships with leading organisations in the creative and public sectors provide an outstanding resource for future CHASE scholars.
