One presents a two-dimensional conformally invariant model, in which the usual instantons (solutions of the Cauchy-Riemann equations) are replaced by quasiconformal mappings. All the usual properties of instantons are preserved. The space of the moduli of these solutions is related in a natural manner to the Teichmuller space.
