About the course

This MFA, described as one of the most influential MFA programmes in the world, subjects art-making to critical scrutiny. Artists on the programme strengthen the motivation, self-reflection and ambition of their practice and its leading ideas.

While on the programme you will continually engage with what it means to practise as an artist today and the position taken by an art-practice in relation to art's complex history and its currency in wider social and cultural processes.

Given the wide international breadth of artists on the programme and the open range of media welcomed in it, a primary concern in discussion is how a particular artist's work and ideas are understood in and across different social, artistic and intellectual contexts.

Our primary emphasis is on how artists look to shift

Lizi Sanchez

110.gif I found out about Goldsmiths when I was still living in Peru (my country of origin) but I didn’t apply until I was already living for three years in the UK.

Before coming to Goldsmiths I was living in Bristol where I was doing studio-based work as an artist, combining it with some art teaching and with some research-based work (as part of an artist group funded by Spike Island), analysing the relationships between art institutions, artists and audiences.

I decided to study a Master’s degree because I felt the need to further discuss my art work and develop its potential. Studying a Master’s was also a way to introduce myself into the English art scene. I came to Goldsmiths not only for its good reputation but because when I did some research about the other possible colleges I found that Goldsmiths was the one with the most critical approach and the one that would most challenge me and my work.
