12 fully funded PhD positions
eight non-funded associated PhD positions
in the new Graduate ProgramThe Photographic Dispositif (GRK1843)

Stipends in Graduate Program from German Research Foundation (DFG) at the Hochschule für Bildende Künste Braunschweig.

The Photographic Dispositif addresses the photographic process as a complex act that is based on specific historical, medial, technological, social, cultural, and aesthetic conditions, including the potential to disturb and modify these very conditions. We welcome PhD projects related to the formation, handling, perception, and exhibition of photography alongside its discourses, as well as projects that scrutinize the specific power of the image and the gaze as an effective means of discipline and/or as creative potential.

The starting date of the program is October 1, 2013. A stipend of 1,200 EUR monthly plus the cost of materials will be provided to the fully funded positions for up to three years. Associates do not receive individual funding, but will be given the opportunity to participate in the research program in Braunschweig free of charge.

Applications should be sent in electronic form to the head of the Graduate Research Program, Prof. Dr. Katharina Sykora, [email protected], code: GRK1843.
