NEW Realities: Understanding Isolation

Welcome to NEW Realities: Understanding Isolation, the first iteration of the DHg online magazine! This is a new forum for experimental and plural perspectives on the role of art in society, initiated and delivered by the DHg’s Student Forum.

Over the past twelve months members of the group have explored the purpose and possibilities of the gallery space. This interrogation took on a new dimension in light of the current global pandemic which has radically challenged and altered how art institutions can present artwork and engage audiences. The theme of Understanding Isolation emerged as a point of departure to reflect on new perspectives on the role of art, and they have adopted the online interactive magazine format. Perspectives presented by each member of the group vary; from addressing the myth of productivity to the evaluation of our engagement with the virtual, digital and online world. However, each contribution offers a rich portal to think, imagine and dream.
