Communicating Vaccination – Ausstellung

Alisa Verzhbitskaya, Marcus Brücken

The event will launch the website and online exhibition "Pieks! Sip! Jab!".

This collaborative project between the Universität der Künste Berlin and the University of Oxford revolves around the interplay between design, communication and vaccination. Visual culture always been important in disseminating opinions and information on vaccination. And, since the mid-twentieth century, graphic design has played a central role in public health campaigns promoting vaccines.
In the winter semester 2021/22 we created a course for Visual Communication students at UdK so they could explore this topic. Students were enabled to conduct their own research on vaccination and through this, create an artistic work. 

The event will launch the website and online exhibition "Pieks! Sip! Jab!“.
There will be a presentation by the initiators and students as well as a critique by Siddharta Lokanandi.
