„Science communication is thinking made visible“
On this site I feature some alternative formats to make research visible in a more engaging and visual way.
A photo essay on the labour movement in Singapore. Medium, 14.02.2019
This exhibition features the photos of Srikhoon Jiangkratok, a migrant worker who worked as a construction worker in Singapore in the 1990s. Srikhoon brought not only his helmet to Singapore, but also his new camera and he began to document his life as a migrant worker with all its facets. This gives us a unique insight into the foreign workers lives which are determined by immigration policies and work regulations. On the one hand we can see the heroes of work on the rooftops of the global city, but also exhausted men who are plagued by tiredness and homesickness.
Fomat: The exhibition exists in analogue paper form but also as digital online exhibition.
