CONTAGION is Science Gallery Bengaluru’s online exhibition-season that runs from 30 April 2021 to 13 June 2021. CONTAGION will explore the infectious nature of not just diseases but emotions, behaviours and information. Through 16 interactive exhibits and more than 40 live programmes we invite our audiences to engage with critical questions on contagious phenomena.
The 45-day long exhibition-season is hosted entirely online and is freely accessible to everyone across the world. The exhibition-season represents what can happen when experts from across disciplines share and create knowledge about contagion. Equally, the exhibition programmes also bring together experts who critically examine the current experience of living through a pandemic, and identify responses for future outbreaks.
CONTAGION is developed in partnership with the Robert Koch Institute, the German national public health institute. DBT-Wellcome Trust India Alliance, the Indian National Science Academy, The Jenner Trust and Chennai Photo Biennale Foundation are the programme partners, and the John Innes Centre at Norwich, UK is one of our content partners.
