PhD Scholarships | DFG Graduate Program The Photographic Dispositif

Organisational Units

Braunschweig University of Art, Germany, is pleased to announce the following positions

12 fully funded PhD positions

in the frame of the PhD Program The Photographic Dispositif, subject to the financial support of the German Research Foundation (DFG). A stipend of 1.200 Euro monthly plus the cost of materials will be provided to the fully funded positions for up to three years. The starting date of the program is October 3rd, 2016.

The Photographic Dispositif addresses the photographic process as a complex act that is based on specific historical, medial, technological, social, cultural, and aesthetic conditions, including the potential to disturb and modify these very conditions. We welcome PhD projects related to the formation, handling, perception, and exhibition of photography alongside its discourses, as well as projects that scrutinize the specific power of the image and the gaze as an effective means of discipline and/or as creative potential.

Braunschweig University of Art’s interdisciplinary exchange between Art and Media Studies, Fine Arts and Design and the connection with the collections and museums near by, offers the perfect context for a wide range of PhD projects about the history, theory and practices of the photographic act.

The PhD projects will be completed within a structured research program with regular colloquia, workshops, or international seminars. Fully funded PhD candidates are obliged to attend.
