We are pleased to announce that our international Open Call for the Asymmetry PhD Scholarship at Goldsmiths, University of London, for the “Advanced Practices” programme is now live on our website. “Advanced Practices” is an exciting new addition to the renowned programmes at the Department of Visual Cultures at Goldsmiths.

About the PhD Scholarship
Awarded to one successful candidate, beginning in the academic year of late September 2021, Asymmetry is offering a bespoke, fully funded PhD Scholarship in the new and innovative Goldsmiths’ PhD programme “Advanced Practices.” This creative opportunity within the field of artistic practices and cross-cultural research is aimed at practitioners who are nationals of Mainland China, Hong Kong or Taiwan, and based in the region or internationally.  

Asymmetry’s PhD Scholarship fully covers four years of the PhD programme, including tuition fees, monthly rent and living costs, for the duration of each academic year. The ideal Scholarship candidate will be an academically determined art professional, an inventive thinker, with a background in curatorial studies and contemporary art, and relevant work experience. While we are open to all applications, we strongly welcome applicants with work experience and innovative project portfolios or academic publications.

About the PhD programme 
“Advanced Practices” is an exciting new addition to the Goldsmiths’ MRes and MPhil/PhD programmes and invites participants to engage with the growing importance of practice-driven research within fields of knowledge production, public exhibiting and cultural organising. Through an interrelated programme of teaching, projects and collaborations, “Advanced Practices” seeks to extend the ground for practice, providing a space to re-situate the relation between audience and exposition. Animated by concepts that vary from digital ecologies to choreo-politics and practice epistemology, the programme encourages applicants to invent and integrate new methodologies for practice into the wider realm of recognised knowledge.
