Touched by Art. Online Talks

Such a waste we cannot touch each other anymore like we used to do! Memories of kisses, handshakes or of feeling the presence of other people within a radius of one meter are slowly fading.

Fortunately there is still art. In this online series of talks I organise, named ‘Touched by Art’, several people will take the digital floor to tell something about an artwork – a poem, story, image, film or choreography.

All encounters are free of charge. The aim of this initiative is to share stories about half-forgotten artworks. It is a way not to lose sight of the art sector in times of corona. So, provide yourself with a nice drink and snack and start the week with a touch of art!

All talks can be joined via this Zoom link:
