What can we learn from the heightened awareness of touch which characterises our experience of the current pandemic? Might the experiences of d/Deafblind communities, and those who rely on their sense of touch to navigate the world, aid a shared understanding of this new normal? Curated by Dr Azadeh Emadi in partnership with Deafblind Scotland, this exhibition presents a range of perspectives on what touch might mean to us post-Covid19. Ultimately, it feeds into ongoing research on how different experiences of touch might reshape audio-visual art practices and further inform the development of communication tools and strategies. The project was funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) as part of UKRI’s Covid-19 funding.
