Touch means to locate oneself physically and mentally in an assemblage and to relate to the human and the non-human. In touch there is the possibility to contact but also - and perhaps even more - to be contacted.  (Who/what touches whom or what?).

Touch is not always visible and touch and being touched also - and perhaps even more - take place in secret. 

In what ways can we touch and be touched in pandemic times, when planned, habitual and accidental interpersonal touch and encounters disappear? What kind of everyday practices has the pandemic produced in this regard? Have eye contact, forms of linguistic touch or self-touch gained relevance? 

What conditions are fundamentally needed to remain open to touch ... ?
