Teaching and Supervision 

Prof. Irit Rogoff
Professor of Visual Culture

Irit Rogoff is a writer, educator, curator and organizer. She is Professor of Visual Culture at Goldsmiths, University of London, a department she founded in 2004. Rogoff works at the meeting ground between contemporary practices, politics and philosophy. Her current work is on new practices of knowledge production and their impact on modes of research, under the title of “Becoming Research” (forthcoming).

Irit Rogoff is one of the initiators of the transdisciplinary field of Visual Culture and founder of the department at Goldsmiths. Her initiatives to establish this new field are led by a belief that we must work beyond bodies of inherited disciplinary knowledge and find motivation for knowledge production in the current conditions we are living out.


Dr. Bridget Crone
Senior Lecturer in Visual Cultures

Bridget Crone is a curator and writer. Focusing on the body in material and speculative terms, her work explores questions of “liveness” and the image in relation to performance theory/ practice, and the changing relations of body, technology and ecology.

Bridget has held numerous curatorial posts and curatorships in the UK and internationally since the late 1990s, including: Media Art Bath (Director, 2006-11), The Showroom, London (2003-6); the Ian Potter Museum, Melbourne; Institute of Contemporary Arts, London; Arnolfini, Bristol; Flat Time House, London among others.

Bridget’s edited book, The Sensible Stage: Staging and the Moving Image (2017) examines the interrelationship of the live body and projected image in contemporary art practice. She writes regularly for artists and recently published an extended introduction (addressing questions of gender and trans materiality) to Turner Prize nominee Tai Shani’s collected writings.

His focus is on the work of Jean-Luc Nancy, Wittgenstein, Talal Asad and the ethics of esoteric Islam as developed by Massignon.
