Humanity is going through a historical moment with a global pandemic reshaping our lives and the world we live in. Public health measures combined with tech solutionism is taking surveillance to the next level. Surveillance has become more and more normalized into our lives. Contact tracing apps and wearables are being introduced while governments are discussing immunity passports and long-term border restrictions. The global economy is in the opening stages of a recession which means that the inequalities will grow further in the aftermath of this pandemic. We are moving more of our lives online. Telemedicine and online classrooms are likely to become staples of everyday life. Amidst all these changes, is there also a change in the way we are looking at things and rethinking the possible?
