Afterall is dedicated to the study of contemporary art and rely on the kind support of both individuals and institutions to commission and disseminate our work.Go on a journey that will shape your career or take you along a different path entirely. Discover our postgraduate courses, search funding opportunities and find out how we can support you.
Afterall undertakes contemporary art research within the academic framework of Central Saint Martins, University of the Arts London, and in partnership with other important international educational and cultural institutions. We share intellectual and financial resources through these partnerships and operate on a very tight budget.
We recognise the importance of research and informed discussion to critical writing and its dissemination and aim to make this research widely available to a variety of audiences through our books, journal, website, talks and symposia.
We engage and support researchers, writers and practitioners in this country and internationally, offering fair pay for each commission. We are committed to the idea that art, and writing on art, should be independent of the commercial art market and relevant to broad educational, cultural, social and political ideas.
Individual donations are crucial to our work, enabling us to offer funded research internships, annual graduate research assistant posts, writing awards and student bursaries. Every contribution, of any amount, is gratefully acknowledged in our journal and on this page. For more information please email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Lynn Hauser & Neil Ross, Janet Sternburg, Dr Steven D. Lavine, The Glasshouse Trust and Helen Zell.
