School of Communication

Visual Communication (MA)

About

Visual Communication students are infamous for producing work that does not always fit into the expected parameters of their discipline. The very nature of the work produced asks challenging questions of our field, and rethinks the purpose it serves in society.

The body of work on display this year is no exception. However, these goals have been heightened and intensified by the necessity of producing work during the upheaval and uncertainty of a pandemic. It is from their bedrooms and living rooms, positioned all over the world, that this cohort of Visual Communication students has been driven by the urgent need to communicate and address societal change.

These students have each negotiated their work on their own terms, but at the same time are asking you to view this work as a collective response. Rejecting individualism, they are instead presenting themselves as a community of makers who over the last two years, have formed a collective shared vision of a deep and resilient belief in humankind. Through their work, each one of them is asking you, the audience, to act, and in doing so to re-imagine a better future.
