Goldsmiths, University of London: Artists' Film and Moving Image
|Institution||Goldsmiths, University of London View institution profile|
This twelve-month, intensively taught practice-based Masters is aimed at artists and graduates working within the field of artists’ film and moving image who wish to develop their practice and professional networks with the support of Goldsmiths' Art Department and its uniquely high concentration of accomplished artist filmmakers.
The programme is centred on the individual experience and knowledge that each student brings, developing them as artists who want to innovate in the expanding field of moving image. Students are challenged to synthesise the knowledge and understanding gained from its bespoke curriculum linking practice, theory and professional development into a reflective, informed and decisive approach to the intellectual, aesthetic, social and technical processes necessary to bring their individual artistic project in moving image or related media from idea to realisation.
The curriculum provides an integration of discursive and practical teaching and learning methods, facilitated by Goldsmiths staff and visiting lecturers. A lecture series addressing the histories, contexts and futures of artists’ moving image is complemented by practice-oriented seminars, workshops and master classes which offer in-depth explorations of individual practices, movements and strategies.
A principle concern that spans across the programme is a sustained consideration of the material display and discursive reception of artists' film and moving image within a gallery context and the agency of a pluralistic moving image in relation to the fixed plane of the cinematic or networked screen.
Benefitting from its location in London and strong affiliation with professional bodies and institutions, the programme emphasises professional development through bespoke mentoring and workshops led by LUX Artists’ Moving Image, as well as with leading professionals and study visits to film festivals, exhibitions and institutions.
