2020 Making Contact

Contact is deri¬≠ved from Latin ‚Äúcon¬≠tin¬≠ge¬≠re‚ÄĚ which means ‚Äúto touch‚ÄĚ and ‚Äúto encoun¬≠ter.‚ÄĚ Making con¬≠ta¬≠ct, the¬≠re¬≠fo¬≠re, is to seek a con¬≠nec¬≠tion, to estab¬≠lish rela¬≠ti¬≠ons, to enter in exchan¬≠ge. Making con¬≠ta¬≠ct is a neces¬≠si¬≠ty of human life, the abi¬≠li¬≠ty to com¬≠mu¬≠ni¬≠ca¬≠te is the most important human skill.

The 2020 exhi­bi­ti­on pro­gram at D21 Artspace will address dif­fe­rent ways of making con­ta­ct. These will be inter­pre­ted as moments of social exchan­ge. We will ask ques­ti­ons of how we get in touch and what are the necessa­ry pre­re­qui­si­tes for it. Seeking con­ta­ct and approa­ching others or even going public means brea­king your iso­la­ti­on, under­stan­ding yourself as an actor in socie­tal con­texts and struc­tures, and, abo­ve all, rela­ting to others. These aspects will be dis­cus­sed in inter­na­tio­nal con­tem­pora­ry con­tri­bu­ti­ons; a pro­gram of work­shops and gui­ded tours will com­ple­ment the exhibitions.
