Second Workshop on Affective Touch


Vision Forum and its partner MKP organise a second workshop that investigates how contemporary research on affective touch can be used for new forms of expressions in the arts. The workshop will take place at Allartnow and in Stockholm April 26-28. At the latter venue, the group will make a collective public perfomance April 27, 7-10pm.
