Summary

**Why study MA Contemporary Art Theory at Goldsmiths?**

- This degree explores a range of theoretical perspectives that shape attitudes towards visual art in the late 20th and early 21st centuries.

- You’ll be encouraged to explore conceptually and creatively the ways in which contemporary artistic practice and critical theory interrelate.

- You’ll expand your knowledge of contemporary artistic developments and deepen your understanding of the interdisciplinary nature of academic discourses on visual culture.

- The programme draws from the fields of performance studies, art history, philosophy, museology, queer theory, post-colonial studies and cultural studies in addressing the critical challenges posed by artistic practice, and you’ll be able to focus on an aspect that particularly interests you.

- You’ll take part in an assessed symposium, which provides you with a chance to present your dissertation topic at an early stage in order to define and progress your final project.
