Rabo Lab: TouchMeTell

 At the Rabo Lab, there’s always something to do. Get to know an art movement, the collection of the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam or…an artist! This Rabo Lab is all about the work of visual artist Melanie Bonajo: TouchMETell.

TouchMETell is a video installation about touching. Hugging is nice, at least if you want to be hugged. Did you know that children who hug each other don’t hit or bully each other as much? Children learn to trust each other. They discover the difference between giving and receiving. Where are your boundaries? Where are mine? And how do I talk about that to someone else, how do I set my boundaries?
