The University of Applied Arts Vienna invites potential candidates to apply for the Artistic Research PhD Programme (PhD in Art). In addition to providing proof of qualification in terms of artistic development candidates must also submit a written exposé outlining their planned activity within the field of artistic research. The six-semester programme of study in the field of art, conducted in English, is set up around themes and practices of artistic research. The thesis consists of an artistic work as well as a reflexive documentation of the knowledge gain yielded by the project.
Of particular importance among the selection criteria are up-to-dateness, innovation potential and the potential social relevance of the planned artistic research activity, as well as the demonstration of knowledge of the national and international research context. Doctoral candidates are overseen by professors at the Angewandte – who are recommended by the same commission that is responsible for their selection.
