Profile of the programme The PhD on Arts comes as a corollary of the artistic spectrum of training offered by UBI, addressing to the Masters in Design, Film, Visual Arts, Fine Arts and Architecture, but also to those who present relevant curricula in the study of culture and humanities
This program considers the epistemological specificity of the arts, its methodologies and objects, framing the artistic basic research development (arts-based research), able to deepen the dialogue with the conceptual, technological and media fields of academia, industry and contemporary society
The program considers the research on and through the arts as fundamental for the generation, mediation, reflection and critique of knowledge and culture so that, in the current crisis of disciplinary taxonomies, proposes an approach to issues of intermedia and hybridisation in the artistic field from the development of theses or original projects or art works proposals
Key learning outcomes The PhD in Arts aims to prepare artists and researchers with high theoretical and methodological skills, giving them analytical maturity and operational capacity in the international context; To know the main problems of contemporary arts, including the complex nature of artistic objects, their influences and implications for the structuring of cultural, social and political activities; Define and develop a research plan for the dissemination of knowledge through the publication of articles or projects, public defense of a dissertation or exhibition of works of art; Enable doctoral students to materialize their works in different media, supports and contexts, making savvy use of the knowledge gained and applying it in new epistemological situations; Operate continuous concatenation of studio work with research and writing, accentuating the dialogue between artistic fields that allow the recognition of new poetics.
