Taking its title from a series of works ‘Tender Touches’, 1976, by avant garde Austrian artist Renate Bertlmann, this exhibition presents works which examine representations of body, sexuality and relationships. The exhibition, curated by Daria Khan, traces its development and transformation from 70s until contemporary artists’ practice. Artworks tackle stereotypes of representation, fetishisation, domesticity, as wells as digitalisation and hybridity of these notions and their forms.

The exhibition features work by:
Renate Bertlmann (1943, Austria)
Friedl vom Gröller/Kubelka (1946, Austria)
Eva Stenram (1976, Sweden)
Zoe Williams (1983, UK)
Julia Zastava (1982, Russia/Austria)
