TOUCH RELEASE is the title of a group exhibition that took place between October and December 2021 at the Nassauischer Kunstverein Wiesbaden. Done in collaboration with Tom Engels, the show comprised the works by 21 students and alums of the Städelschule class by artist Haegue Yang.

Participating artists: Andreas Amble, Moriah Askenaizer, Cudelice Brazelton IV, Alex Chalmers, Arnaud Ferron, Lorenz Ganthaler, Zishi Han, Aerin Hong, Mariam Kvirikashvili, Guy Lee, Antonis Magoulas, David Moser, Thủy Tiên Nguyễn, Emmilou Rößling, Alex Thake, Maria Toumazou, Francisco M.V., Ian Waelder, Matt Welch, Alicja Wysocka, Miran Yang.

This book is a visual essay that combines the exhibition's installation views and additional materials the participating artists submitted.

Guy Lee, an artist from the show, manually collaged the submitted materials onto the exhibition documentation. The resulting pages were subsequently scanned using an Epson WorkForce WF-7710.

Co-published by Printer Fault Press and Maria Editions, both founded by artists from the class: Ian Waelder and Maria Toumazou, editors of the publication.

The book contains additional text contributions by Tom Engels, Yasmil Raymond, Elke Gruhn, Eva Claudia Scholtz, and Alex Thake.
