Why Are We Stuck In Hospital? A new exhibition by Foka Wolf
Produced by Ikon, Why Are We Stuck in Hospital? (7-19 March), illustrates the invisibility of people with learning disabilities and/or autistic people in long-stay hospitals.
Known for his ‘subvertisements’, which parody corporate and political posters, Foka Wolf’s interventions make us question our city’s infrastructure and whether it is meeting the needs of our community. Comprising graphic design and declarative captions, Foka Wolf’s new posters respond to Why Are We Stuck in Hospital? – a project conducted by the School of Social Policy at the University of Birmingham in partnership with the rights-based organisation Changing Our Lives.
