Call for Applications 2023 for the Artistic Research PhD Programme (PhD in Art)

Application period: 8 February – 22 February, 2023 (noon, CET)
Programme start: October 2023
Further Information:

The University of Applied Arts Vienna invites potential candidates to apply for the Artistic Research PhD Programme (PhD in Art). The Artistic Research PhD Programme is a postgraduate course of study in the field of art. The programme, conducted in English, concludes with the award of an internationally recognised PhD degree. The course of study is organised around topics and practices of artistic research, whereby the focus is on artistic work understood as the basis for knowledge production. Reflection on, and exploration of, specific methods and production processes in each candidate's realisation of their artistic project is integral to the development and a critical component of the artistic research work. 

Of particular importance among the selection criteria are up-to-dateness, innovative potential and prospective social relevance of the planned artistic research proposal, and the demonstration of knowledge of the national and international artistic and research context. The supervisors are professors at the Angewandte and are recommended by the commission responsible for selecting the candidates.

In addition to providing proof of qualification in terms of artistic development – documented by submitting a CV and a portfolio of artistic work – candidates must submit a written exposé. The application (CV, portfolio, exposé, all in English, compiled into a single PDF file no larger than 50 MB) has to be uploaded online via the Angewandte Application Tool from 8 February to 22 February, 2023. The application process results will be communicated to applicants by August 2023 at the latest.
