MRES Art: Moving Image 2013-2015
A Unique Masters degree devoted to the study of Artists' Moving Image
Open for applications
Over the past two decades, artists moving image has proved itself a dynamic and thriving area of art practice, to be encountered in the gallery, museum, cinema auditorium, and a host of other unexpected venues. But what about the rich and fascinating histories, theories and aesthetics that have led artists to turn to film and video? And what insights can a study of artists moving image offer us for understanding the diverse practices that now fill art spaces internationally as well as in the UK?
A unique association between LUX and Central St Martins College of Art has created a research led masters degree to address these questions. The course is focused on nurturing a discursive culture around moving image art, and offers a number of unique features for students interested in studying and working in the field of artist's moving image.
As the only course of its kind dedicated solely to the study of artist filmmaking, the pathway offers an in depth insight and understanding into the theories, aesthetics and histories that have contributed to its rich and diverse culture and filmmaking practices. Seminars are led by eminent scholars in the field: including Dr Maeve Connolly, Melissa Gronlund, Dr Rachel Moore, Uriel Orlow, Filipa Ramos and Dr Duncan White. Visiting lecturers include Dr Ros Gray, Jonathan Walley, Federico Windhausen and Dr Maxa Zoller, as well as Benjamin Cook, Mike Sperlinger and Gil Leung from LUX.
