Our approach to Visual Cultures frames it in terms of what it can do alongside what it can know. Be inspired by a team of world-renowned teaching and research staff, who will challenge you to explore existing paradigms, develop an individual approach to visual culture research, and articulate your thinking as you develop your 'manifesto' and portfolio.
Why should you study MRes Visual Cultures: Practice and Activism at Middlesex University?
This exciting course operates at the forefront of a rich, interdisciplinary academic and creative landscape. Pushing at the limits of Visual Culture, we encourage students to approach the field from a variety of perspectives.
Working with, and feeding into, learning networks beyond the University, we aim to influence and inform the emerging and developing communities of professional, activist, creative and research practice around Visual Cultures. We champion creative and activist practices as both methods of engagement and as subjects of enquiry, drawing on our 130 year history of experimental and progressive attitudes to art and design through our origins as the Hornsey College of Art.
