Practice as Research

The Mistress - Teresa MurjasThe Department has a long history of practice-led research, which began in the early 90s. The Department's policy of providing research time, physical space and the support to develop experimental practices has enabled members of staff to engage in diverse and exciting projects over the last 24 years. Innovative, critical practices have been explored, and new approaches to documentation have been developed. These have led to public presentations, publication and the development of websites.
