Skin Hunger: Jean-Baptiste del Amo
Originally aired on October 23
Re-release June 03
Keeping in touch, both figuratively and physically, is a challenge during times of isolation; while physical touch – and what we touch – is now a source of fear and anxiety for many. The Dutch phrase “skin hunger” has come to prominence in recent months, encapsulating these feelings. TIFA is proud to present Skin Hunger: a new writing commission featuring original works by internationally renowned writers, in reflection on what we’ve all felt and suffered during the COVID-19 crisis. Contributors will read their new work in these pre-recorded videos. Authors include Shokoofeh Azar, Francesca Ekwuyasi, Mieko Kawakami, Tyler Pennock, Meg Wolitzer and more.
This reading by Jean-Baptiste del Amo will be presented in French. English captioning is available for this video. Please click the ‘CC’ button in the video toolbar to turn it on.
