What do we pay our heroes during a pandemic?

An art installation by Yuri Veerman

14.12.2021  |  by Cato Verhoeven  |  Designalism

Dit Zijn Onze Helden! by designer Yuri Veerman shows how strong incomes in vital professions differ from the incomes of top managers. The gigantic sculpture has been launched at the Malieveld in The Hague in 2020. On the website www.ditzijnonzehelden.nl, the socio-economic context of each displayed profession is examined in detail.

On June 9 2021, ACED organised Designalism: Design + Journalism, a live talk show about the intersection of design and journalism. Watch the full show on our YouTube channel. This evening was in collaboration with Beeld en Geluid Den Haag.
