Il corpo non mente

Study Programme

BA Major Design


BA Visual Communication Project



Summer semester

The course “Il corpo non mente“ addresses the question of the body under the COVID-19 pandemic through the tools and languages of visual communication. The main topic is articulated through a series of concepts (greeting, normality, distance, cure), each of which refers to a specific aspect related to the transformation of our bodies at the time of the pandemic. For each of these concepts, each student defines a word to interpret and represent the given concept and the way in which this is declined in our bodily experience. For each word, an artefact of visual communication is then designed. In this way, at the end of the course, an incomplete dictionary is created, a sort of “abbecedario” to learn how to read the pandemic, and especially how our body is reacting to this condition.
