Abstract

Pandemic emerged on the eve of the 100th anniversary of the arrival of the Spanish Influenza pandemic to Tasmania (early 1919). Exploring contemporary resonances across art-science (Svenja Kratz, Drew Berry), border-politics (Ravi Avasti), language (Travis Cox, David McDiarmid), and human stories (Dan Elborne) together with archival materials drawn from national institutions, Pandemic sought to examine public health narratives, their shared connection to language of the past, and to understand pandemics as cultural phenomena. Exploring historical and contemporary narratives of fear HIV/AIDs, vaccine hesitancy, Fake news, migration the exhibition evidenced the important role of language in transmitting misinformation.
