Visualizing the Virus

29.9.2021 | Hochschule für Gestaltung und Kunst Basel, Institut Experimentelles Design und Medienkulturen

Visualizing the Virus connects insights from different disciplines to create a collective digital platform for visualizing not just the Coronavirus pandemic but all the inequalities it makes visible.

Visualizing the Virus is an interdisciplinary digital project through which one can visualize and understand the Coronavirus pandemic from a variety of perspectives. It aims to center the inequalities the pandemic makes visible. We are not only interested in the ways in which scientists, artists and people in their everyday lives have made the virus visible; but also in processes, historical and contemporary, that the viruses make visible – inequalities be it of the access to resources and healthcare, vaccine imperialism, xenophobia, gender inequalities, and so on. The digital architecture of the platform invites the visitor to navigate clusters of connection. One can explore links between quotidian lived experience, pathologies, the natural sciences and socio-cultural critique. As well as being a dynamic archive, it provides the visitor with spaces for reflection on the scales of the crisis and our current infrastructural inequalities.
