The arts can be a reflection on society and its times. It therefore does not come as a surprise that many students chose to comment and reflect on the Covid-19 pandemic in their final artistic works. The coronavirus has planted seeds of inspiration for some. For others, it’s mostly the dark energy and sadness of the pandemic that resonates in their work. Besides the pandemic, also other urgent topics were explored, such as climate change, the human-nature relationship, patriarchy and the end of our times. And more personal themes like fragility, dreams and student life.
Viewing art online changes the experience. Some nuances might be lost in digital form, such as the daylight hitting a material surface or the scent of paint on a canvas. Other experiences will be added, such as the possibility to re-visit the exhibition space again and again and again at any moment and from any place you’d prefer.
Please feel welcome to freely scroll, click, read, swipe and navigate your way through this online exhibition space, and enjoy the diverse works of these art students!
