How to Touch? with Liina Klauss

ECO PAVILION

In today’s digital age, we are in touch with everything from political injustice to abuse of animals to the destruction of the planet by human greed. The apocalypse is right at our fingertips. But are we really touched? Never before could we access so much knowledge through information and pictures. Reality is utterly traumatizing. So often our answer seems to be numbness, ignorance or depression. Can we even allow ourselves to be touched? As an artist, Liina has found a way to translate the trauma into creativity, depression into action, and helplessness into empowerment. The key is your own two hands: what you touch touches you.
