The impact of the pandemic on PhD students in the “writing-up” stage of their PhD journey merits serious discussion.

We are nearing two years since the nationwide lockdown announced in March 2020, and at the surface level, it looks like the experiences of the times are beginning to enter oblivion. However, the break and disconnection from a certain way of living continue to affect our everyday life in multiple ways.

In the exhibition Writing the History of the Future: Signature Works of the Singular ZKM Media Art Collection at the Gwangju Museum of Art in Gwangju, Korea, the ZKM presents key works from its media art collection, which is one of the largest of its kind in the world.
