Images are a big part of communication, today more so than ever. Not only do we consume more visual media than ever through social media and streaming sites. More and more we use images to communicate with each other, e.g. gifs and memes. Yet the way we read and understand an image is influenced by several factors including historical and cultural context or background, age as well as race and gender.
Through our latest thematic discussions, we created an environment that encouraged discussions on the topic of culturally sensitive communication and mindfulness in the way we communicate information with each other in the SuSanA Network, in our SuSanA publications, and other ways of communication within the SuSanA universe and beyond.
A group of experts in art curation, gender-and postcolonial art discourse, and communication have been leading the discussion and created a guide on the use of images and a final report of the thematic discussion.
We hope that the final report and the guide on the use of images will be a welcomed orientation for many SuSanA members and partners.
