PhD in Practice
Academy of Fine Arts Vienna

The study program is designed for a duration of four years (240 ECTS credits). During this time the participants will develop and implement their projects analytically and experimentally in coordination with the academic and artistic team of co-participants and faculty. Transdisciplinary modes of working in artistic production will be fostered. Importantly, the ability to write texts, and to conceive, organize, document, and carry out independent research will be developed by supporting program participants in a networked, international and transdisciplinary environment (The Center for Art/Knowledge/CAK).

The participants have access to the facilities and resources of the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna and to the institutions and people that form the broader and expanding network of the Center for Art/Knowledge and the future Doctorate School of the Academy. Participants will be given the means to pursue and develop dissertation work resulting in an artistic project displaying a strong emphasis on methodological reflexivity and documentation. Moreover, participants are expected to take an active part in organizing the program (coordinating workshops, guest lectures, conferences, exhibitions, screenings, etc.).
