In 2018 she began a practice-led PhD at the Slade School of Art. Her project traces the history of Euro-American music-video as an artistic form, from the advent of MTV (1981), through to its dissemination via YouTube (2005) and streaming services from 2008. Since beginning her PhD Anneke’s work has been presented as part of exhibitions and events at sites including LUX Artist Moving Image Festival, Tramway, Glasgow; South London Gallery, London; Glasgow International; Cafe Oto, London and Filmhuis Cavia, Amsterdam. In 2019 she presented her first solo exhibition ‘Labour’s Own Sounding Ideal’ at the Pump House Gallery. 

Kampman has hosted and taken part in conferences and academic events including ‘Borderline Sonorities’ in Brazil (2021) and the European Artistic Research Network, Leeds Art Gallery (2019). She has given talks at Goldsmiths University, UCL, Open School East and Glasgow school of art and published academic writing in ‘The New Soundtrack’ (Edinburgh University Press). In 2021 she took up a position as Lecturer in Music at Goldsmiths University, where she teaches Popular Music Production and Audio-Visual Composition. 

Kampman is part of the artist collective Common Study, currently resident at Somerset House Studios. 

Research Themes
Research Summary

Operating through a range of theoretical, fictional and artistic frames Kampman’s artistic practice draws from her own experiences as a musician alongside the methods and arguments of German critical theory and institutional critique, re-staging the techniques of the cultural industries in an "immanent critique" of pop. Key to this is an ongoing interest in issues related to the commodification, standardisation and reproduction of the artistic 'personality' (broadly understood). In producing her artworks, she often works collaboratively as she explores issues of subjectivity and performance reflexively through dialogues and interactions with other musicians, actors and performers.

Her PhD project ‘Pop Control: Dead. Air. Management. Music-video as Immanent Critique’ see’s Kampman turn her attention to the commercial music-video. Poised between artwork, advert and commodity, the music-video has been both instrumentalised for profit by the commercial music industry and deployed by visual artists, often as a means of artistic expression or critique. Increasingly, music-video is both a music industry product and a form of institutionalised high entertainment present in galleries and biennials; across the research Kampman seeks to understand how the increasing relationship between these two fields reflects shifts in the structural - that is the economic, social and ideological - conditions of contemporary arts production today.
