Contakt Collective LINK: @contaktcollective LINK: Research Publication 1, Published 29/05/2020. We are a collective of researchers brought together in the Visual Cultures Department of Goldsmiths, University of London, exploring social space in a time of human capital and social distance. We experienced this pandemic together as students, as carers, as workers, as immigrants, & we faced our fellow students leaving the country & returning to various time zones, lockdown restrictions, political tensions, and numerous personal crises – yet we continued reaching out to one another. We speak as: researchers, artists, writers, internationals, art historians, curators, thinking activists, philosophy nerds. A collection of essays, writings, notes, our Instagram diary series, & transcripts from our live Panel discussions.
