Why choose us?
Central Saint Martins is a world-leading centre for arts and design education. Its reputation stems from the creative energy of its staff and students and the stellar achievements of its graduates nationally and internationally. The nine programmes at CSM explore the boundaries of their discipline. Students and staff are continually alert to new ideas, and are curious and restless in developing beyond the expected norms of their subject, so emerging work is at the forefront of its area. CSM sits at the heart of London’s creative scene, and of one of Europe’s most dynamic new culture and innovation quarters at King’s Cross, making the college increasingly important to London’s cultural life, and indicative of our general desire to open up CSM to as broad an audience as possible.
BACCC is a multi-disciplinary course which combines elements of art history and visual culture studies with the theories and practices of criticism and curation. The course takes advantage of its location in an art school which puts the development of the student’s personal identity and independence at the centre of teaching and learning.
We’re looking for a candidate with relevant undergraduate and postgraduate qualifications in the areas of art history and theory; visual culture studies; architecture/architectural history/theory; media studies or design history and theory with the view to expanding the course provision beyond the European canon.
You will have a broad knowledge of and interest in the history and contemporary practices of cultural analysis, production and dissemination. You might bring to the role experience as an archivist, curator and/or writer in the public and/or private sectors where you will have led dissemination activities to peer and general audiences.
As an academic, previous experience of curriculum development and a track record of academic research is desired. You are also an experienced, inspired and innovative teacher.
In return, University of the Arts London offers generous leave, an attractive pension and a commitment to your continuing personal development and training in an environment that encourages excellence, creativity and diversity. Relocation assistance is available.
