Back on March 25th, the Vienna Museum turned to crowdsourcing the most relevant visuals pieces of the times. It resulted in almost 1,800 submissions — and the best ones are now available to view through a virtual exhibition.
The photos are capturing the reality of the pandemic in the digital era: discarded gloves and face masks, physical distancing markers, and warning signs — everything that is crucial for the history of mankind. According to the Vienna Museum representatives, they never stopped accepting submissions and will continue to do so as long as the current pandemic goes on.
Konstanze Schäfer, a press spokesperson for the Vienna Museum, said that an exhibition like that should be current and that big moments like that should be saved for the future generation to observe.
