Prospect (video installation) Anthony Haughey TULCA, 2009

The successful applicant for the Arts Council Artist in the Community Scheme Bursary Award 2013: Arts and Cultural Diversity has been announced and the Bursary Award is to go to artist Anthony Haughey.

Haughey has been working within culturally diverse art, community and academic contexts for more than 20 years, both as an artist and educator. He lives and works in Ireland. He is an artist and lecturer/researcher in the School of Media at the Dublin Institute of Technology where he is also a PhD supervisor at the Centre for Research in Transcultural Media Practice. He is an editorial advisor for the photographic journal Photographies published by Routledge (London). His work has been exhibited and collected internationally and is represented in many public and private collections.

He was Senior Research Fellow at the Interface Centre for Research in Art, Technologies and Design at the University of Ulster where he was awarded his PhD. During his research fellowship in Belfast he organised public discussion forums around Art and Contested Spaces, and curated public art projects including, Art, Media and Contested Space, an international public art event, which included artists, Alfredo Jaar, Peter KennardPhillipps, Wendy Ewald and Faisal Abdu’ Allah. Since 2005 he has been involved in the Global Migration Research Network. His recent work has employed relational/dialogical aesthetics to explore notions of citizenship, migration and contested space. In tandem with the Global Migration Research Network, he has been working with a group of asylum seekers and refugees on various projects including How To Be A Model Citizen (2008) and Citizen (2013).

Through his recent projects Haughey has become increasingly interested in the dialogical relationship between his art practice , the Global Migration Research Network and various publics. He intends reflectively writing through these processes by drawing on academic, visual culture , political and community art discourse analysis to expand and critically contribute to theoretical debates within socially engaged art practices in Ireland and internationally at this time of global economic crisis.
