In THE TOUCH the Danish-Iraqi artist Lina Hashim invites you into a forbidden dimension of Islam.
A parallel world filled with spirit-manners and djinns, invoked through blasphemous rituals and brutal ceremonies. A world where magic and curses determine your destiny. A world cultivated in hidden corners throughout the world – also here in Denmark.
Lina Hashim is cursed. When Hashim first hears of the curse, she doesn’t believe it’s real. But as the world around her collapses in misfortune, violence, divorce, hospital admissions and being haunted, the question begins to arise: am I cursed or am I losing my mind?
THE TOUCH is a performance lecture and an exhibition in one. A true story about Lina Hashim’s journey into a spiritual world. A journey into both black and white magic. A journey that she embarks on through violent, forbidden rituals in her all-sacrificing attempt to transcend herself and overcome all contradictions between reason and madness, inquiry and subjection, right and wrong. The story is documented in THE TOUCH where Hashim is a hostess for her own anthropological and personal exhibition of ritual objects, designed in collaboration with Christian Lollike.
