Developed during the first year of the COVID-19 pandemic, Hotline appropriates the dated, faceless technology of the telephone hotline in order to consider what kinds of things we ask, confess, or create with one another at a mediated distance. From sex hotlines, crisis hotlines, psychic hotlines, to tip hotlines, the anonymous phone call is a poignant example of intimacy without proximity. To participate, call (866) 696-0940 (international callers, please use Facetime Audio or Skype). Stay anonymous.
