COVID-19. Travelling without moving presents a digital journey through the complex manifestations of a global pandemic in the context of late-capitalist society. Entirely conceived and produced for the digital realm, the online exhibition collects and interlinks eight original projects developed by alumni of Design Academy Eindhoven from June to September 2020.

The world is currently bearing witness to a virus with unique conditions of contagion that created a pandemic of unexpected scale, ubiquity, and duration. The fragilities of global supply chains were suddenly exposed at their breaking points; the relationships of bodies and spaces drastically changed; perspectives on working arrangements have evolved as digital control systems have become more visible.

GEO—DESIGN: COVID-19. Travelling without moving — a chain of original readings that open up an unexpectedly immediate reality marked by acceleration, deceleration and creativity. With strikingly different approaches to design and research, the online exhibition explores individual as well as global contexts through digital languages — coding, communication systems, video essays and 3D renderings.

GEO—DESIGN: COVID-19. Travelling without moving was launched online on October 12, 2020.
