Opening with discussion: 17th November 6-7pm

Between the 17-19th November The Art School exhibits reflections from PhD Behind the Scenes, a six-month inter-school project conducted by ten PhD Students across The Glasgow School of Art.

Warriors, detectives, victims, cheerleaders, academics, brothers and sisters, hermits, and passionate advocates… a PhD journey can be seen as a welcomed battle where we play many roles. Each of us built a personal archive of artefacts (words, images, sounds, drawings), regularly gathered in our own way. These stand as distinctive interpretations of an internal process sparked by our studies. The focus was on us, as individuals.

This exhibition presents a snapshot of an ongoing process of self-reflection. An assemblage of each individual archive aimed to start conversations on what’s behind a PhD path, in The Glasgow School of Art. We hope you will join us to develop this conversation further.
