Mountain of Art Research - Goldsmiths

The Mountain of Art Research (MARs) is based in the Department of Art at Goldsmiths College, University of London. A bit like a research centre, except it’s a mountain, MARs supports and promotes the development of innovative art research across a range of  practices including - but not limited to - studio, performance, film and video, curatorial, critical, art-writing, situated, participatory and interdisciplinary practice. Committed to rigorous formal experimentation, maverick conceptual exploration and socially-engaged articulation, MARs emphasises the material ‘stuff’ of art research as much as its speculative possibilities and political imperative.

Through MARs we bring together researchers within Art, across disciplines, between institutions and beyond higher education for intentional, concentrated discussion and sharing of research. As both platform and ethos, the aim of MARs is to challenge received ideas and habits; to promote new ways of thinking and being both in and out of this world.

MARs is linked to and supported by the MPhil/PhD Programme in the Department of Art at Goldsmiths College, University of London.
