Touching 2022 is a virtual group exhibition where nine artists create worlds and imagine alternative realities situated in the near future. Each artist has created an interactive three-dimensional space. The spaces are interconnected by portals, and the viewers navigate through them from a first person perspective.

The Covid-19 pandemic has forced a reorientation of our relationship to intimacy, communication and globalization. We are situated in between life and death in a new way, which is affecting everybody differently. The notion of care and collective responsibility has become central; a seemingly conditional and temporary care that is balanced against continued dividends, market economy and individualism. The failures of established power structures are becoming tangible, opening up a space of critique towards the general longing of going “back to normal”. Instead of holding on to pieces of normality in a shattered world, we could try to imagine a world that reinvent itself unbound from current structures.
