Why study Visual Cultures at Goldsmiths?
- We’re one of the few university departments internationally to have developed programmes that consider contemporary art and culture beyond the disciplinary parameters of traditional art history.
- We look at art in an international context and consider the ways in which it engages with urgent social, cultural and political issues in the world today.
- We explore visual culture within a framework of critical theory, philosophy and cultural studies. Included are issues of cultural difference, performativity, visual display, aurality, encounters with audiences, and the production of subjectivities.
