PhD proposals on Architecture Curation and Culture


We invite doctoral research proposals that investigate architecture curation and culture with a particular emphasis on social, economic, political, and cultural systems…

The Curatorial Research Collective (CRC) continues to expand its advanced research intents by welcoming proposals for doctoral research that pertain to its research ambitions. Specifically, the CRC welcomes new doctoral research projects that question the work of formal and informal institutions shaping architecture curation and culture (such as museums, archives, centers, groups, movements…), or that probe the various initiatives that occupy the intersection of architecture and society (such as exhibitions, biennales and triennales, books, journals, public discussions and programs, support policies, new media…), or any other pressing issue shaping architecture culture. Furthermore, the Curatorial Research Collective invites innovative proposals that productively collide theory and practice, particularly those that reveal rather than smooth the breaks, difficulties, tensions, and discontinuities within architecture culture, in both its historical and contemporary condition.

Ultimately, the aim of the Curatorial Research Collective is to develop a working understanding of architecture curation and culture—particularly of the various moments and instruments that compose such cultural apparatus—through comprehensive studies allowed by doctoral research.

Accepted PhD candidates will conduct advanced independent research on their topic supported by a daily supervisor as well as other members of the Curatorial Research Collective and the Chair of Architecture History and Theory at TU Eindhoven. PhD candidates are expected (and supported) to present their research and results through journal and magazine articles, conference papers, as well as public symposia and exhibitions. Opportunities for teaching research seminars and studios will be available for advanced candidates.

Accepted PhD candidates may choose to follow the doctoral program either in the Netherlands or remotely (with supervision being conducted online).
