Cyberspace has triggered a cultural shift that enables a new understanding of body, identity, and mind. Through the virtual, we are able to create new forms of intimacy, relationships, and kinship, and enable a greater diversity of identities. However, it also propagates coded prejudices and disembodied violence that nevertheless become very tangible through the phygital nature of our reality. Curated by Eva Fischer and Martina Menegon, the exhibition Intangible Care explores tactics of care as artistic practice. It unfolds a collection of seven international positions that address the intangibility of our contemporary phygital world and develop strategies of resilience. Through video and immersive and interactive installations, Intangible Care plays with both tangible and intangible concepts, activating an urgent dialogue and exploration of care and affect in our contemporary and technological society.
