In December 2020, we, Gila Kolb and Aina Tur, were asked by the Institut Ramon Llull, in collaboration with the Goethe Institut Barcelona, to curate an online and transnational talk series. The series was to address the question of how cultural practitioners have been confronted with the global pandemic emergency and how this has changed the way cultural experiences are created and shared. Almost a year after this commissioning, we summarise in this article what we have learned and unlearned from these conversations, their guests and audiences. We also want to share the doubts and questions brought by people from different disciplines, cultures and countries as they came together and discussed.
