The Department of Art at the University of Reading, in collaboration with the Postgraduate Programme in Curating at Zurich University, are excited to announce a new Curatorial and cross-disciplinary cultural studies, practice-based doctoral programme in Art starting in January 2012. http://www.reading.ac.uk/art/pg-research/art-postgraduate-rsearch-zurich-phd.aspx
Reading and Zurich are offering this doctoral program for research in and as curatorial and/or artistic practice. Whilst being enrolled in Reading, students will be part of a research group hosted by the Postgraduate Programme in Curating in Zurich, where they will also be offered opportunities for teaching and lecturing in Higher Education. The new PhD programme specializes in offering established curators, artists, art critics and designers from all disciplines the critical framework to focus on specific curatorial and cultural research topics through a combined theoretical and practical approach. The programme aims to provide a cooperative environment with a decidedly cross-disciplinary and international bent based. Participants will be able to engage with an ongoing international public programme in Zurich and with the independent OnCurating magazine.
