An Exhibition on Social Mobility in Mexico

Cossío, María González de;

Full Article:

This paper describes an information design process of an itinerant exhibition on Social Mobility in Mexico. The process involves the participation of an interdisciplinary team that put together creative and thoughtful insights into an interactive and didactic presentation of complex information. The design process included research and analysis of information from various sources and different disciplines, concept and visualisation, testing concepts, design project and production. Testing visitors understanding of the concepts and recall was also included in the process. The exhibition is based on a series of graphs that transformed data into clear and simple information for non-specialists. These graphs were designed for a web site. However, the NGO responsible for the statistical study on Social Mobility wished to disseminate these topics into another level. The purpose is to convey relevant information regarding intergenerational social mobility, and the relation between education and income level to young people throughout the country. Teachers and parents, as well as policy makers, are also considered as possible indirect visitors. The exhibition is designed to promote awareness of these issues and generate a different attitude of young students to break vicious cycles of poverty and inequality. The exhibition will be inaugurated on the last week on August 2013.
