Mutated Industry

Mutated Industry


COVID-19 is marking a re-structuring of the pharmaceutical landscape as nation states recognize a need for security and resilience within production processes. Heavily affected by the pandemic, the production of paracetamol slowed down significantly while demands grew due to the medication’s positive impact on symptoms of an infection with COVID-19.

In response to the ongoing global pandemic, Mutated Industry points out how a highly confidential and ingrained pharmaceutical industry is developing resilient approaches to redesign its global supply chain. With a scenario set three years in the future, Mutated Industry explores strategies of total reshoring, the return of production back to the company’s original country, of a component critical for pharmaceutical production.

A symphonic visual lecture, Mutated Industry addresses possible developments within a global pharmaceutical supply chain incited by disruptions caused by COVID-19.
