(Dis)connect After periods of lockdown, home quarantine and self-isolation, we see a number of artists reflecting on feelings of loneliness and deprivation of touch, as well as the desire to forget new connections. Throughout the submissions, alternative perceptions of reality are being offered, inviting us to see the world differently. While some views are distorted, dreamy or sinister, others serve us crystal clear observations of our surroundings. The portfolios greatly vary in their artistic approach, going from material experiments to social engagement. What binds them is a strong sense of either belonging or displacement, ultimately questioning who we are in connection with others. (Dis)connect shows a deeply rooted desire to express the self in all its vulnerability, between hopes and dreams, from the demons of the mind to our wildest imagination.
