Book launch - Caress. A Candid Approach

Caress. A Candid Approach. is a collection of thoughts, shaped by the notion of care and care taking. A starting point for this publication is our realization that care is an intrinsic part of our own practice as curators, educators, organizers and artists.

In the process of articulation, we captured the notion of care by engaging in conversations, gathering different approaches, ideas and practices – a caress, only a fraction of what is essentially beyond measure.

With the launch of Caress. A Candid Approach. we introduce the outcome of this collective editorial journey, and add an additional dimension to it by bringing the publication’s content to life through conversation and music. Throughout the evening you will also be able to engage with audio and visual presentations of the content.
