One of the biggest questions we've all had to deal with during this unforgettable spring is how things are made and shared. How to create art, talk about art, make artworks meet an outside world and how to meet peers and other art practitioners are usually things taken for granted. This is now something we all must rethink. And that is what we have done in Halftime. Little did we know that "internet art" would be the thing to embrace!

Zoom is now our second home and a format that we quickly have gotten accustomed to. It has become a space for work as well as for chatting about everyday things. A place where we present ourselves to the world – the big and the very closest. This is the time when a conversation in bed or on your parents' couch is as natural as an office or a studio setting. The everyday and the place or time for work is blurred and it really doesn´t matter to us.

When using a zoom-meeting for an exhibition such as Halftime, the blurring continues. The meeting has turned into an art show where visitors can get a private view into each of the participants temporary home ground. Works are either done directly for this platform or are documentations of presentations that have or might have taken place.

When a "private view" is no longer "a grand crowded opening with drinks and hugs", and we are forced to revaluate our practices and our personal situations, we offer something even more personal and intimate. A look into the lives and working conditions of 14 artists – the spring of 2020.
