MRes Art: Moving Image is a collaboration between Central Saint Martins School of Art and LUX. A research masters programme that provides an opportunity to focus on theoretical and historical study of artists' moving image. Despite artists' moving image being one of the most visible and fastest growing contexts for visual art practice, there is no existing centre of scholarship in this area and, at this time, practice runs far ahead of discourse. While huge amounts of work are being made and shown, the specific language to describe and respond to it critically remains underdeveloped.
The course develops in-depth knowledge and exploration of artists' moving image as an evolving and discursive field of study. It presents an integrated series of screenings, seminars and set readings of key works, which together address a range of theoretical positions and historical contexts.
The course takes place at Central Saint Martins and LUX and the course leader is Lucy Reynolds.
MRes Art: Moving Image supports and is shaped by:
- Development of scholarship and research in the subject
- Student access to the professional working context of LUX as well as its large network of collaborating national and international institutions, artists and key arts professionals working with the moving image
- Student access to the UK's only significant collection of artists' film and video works and the largest such collection in Europe, held by LUX, and use of the British Artists Film and Video Study Collection held at CSM
- Student projects that draw on LUX's experience of delivering public programming (exhibitions, screenings, commissions).
