In the safe haven of self-imposed isolation, the fear of diversity and intermingling keeps growing. The increasing calls for „I“ are rapidly replacing former ideas of „we“ only to, at times, be outsounded by pathos-laden calls for the community to „Come together!“. But can these really stop the increasing sense of alienation within our society?

TOGETHER embraces this pathos, aiming to create a visualisation of solidarity and stories of people together in unity. Let’s live «togetherness» to all it’s pathetic potential along to Beethoven’s ninth symphony, a hymn of comradery, and experience community through trust.
