Transart is offering the first international low-residency studio PhD course of studies offered for practice-based research (creative work) accompanied by a written thesis with a word count to be agreed upon with advisors. Advisors will come from Transart Institute and Plymouth University. Exceptionally focused and accomplished artists can apply for transfer from the MFA to the studio PhD program within the first year of the MFA. Students who wish to enroll in the Fast Track program need to apply to the MFA Creative Practice. In their second semester on the MFA they develop a doctoral proposal. At the end of the semester they can apply for Fast Track assessment. Successful applicants will be registered for the MPhil/PhD course of studies at that time.
Transart is particularly keen on encouraging proposals that in the widest sense explore the archive, documentary art making, language/image, space and inhabitation of space, software as art, network culture, the role of art making in peace, mediation and international relations as well as performance. The proposal should demonstrate systematic study, independence, critical competence and originality.
