Through the review of practice, concomitant theories, and interviews with
selected artists and historians the research will aim to establish a working
theoretical definition of narrative as it applies to the field of historical

its positioning within the avant-garde. A two-year position is available as

project, (including theoretical and historical review), undertake field-work
