An inspiring longread on the influence of Covid-19 on education and the arts.
The Covid-19 crisis teaches us how priceless human nearness is. Art and education can't do without it either. Like works of art, people lose their aura when kept at digital arm's length. Art is lifeless when it can't resonate with bodies. In Nearness, Marlies De Munck and Pascal Gielen diagnose a new reality. Only culture marks the difference between surviving and living.
