With the title Alone Together, the exhibition aims to look into questions such as: What does contemporary solitude mean? Full programme will follow in January.

In February 2020, Artefact: the exhibition and festival focusing on contemporary art, current events, and societal challenges, will zoom in on ideas of solitude and togetherness in contemporary society.

Under the title Alone Together, the exhibition aims to look into questions such as: What does contemporary solitude mean? How does it relate to feelings of loneliness? Can we consider loneliness not in individual terms, but as the result of more structural forces, be they social, cultural, economic, technological or architectural in nature? How do we connect in today’s society? What is the quality of our interactions / connection, and which role do (social and communication) technologies play in this? The exhibition aims to shed light on these questions, and while potentially confronting, it also hopes to offer some consolation through the fact that we are many.
