Vortragsreihe: "Who has the Freedom to Care, or Not to Care?"​ (Kunst – Forschung – Geschlecht)

Die interdisziplinäre Vortragsreihe "KUNST – FORSCHUNG – GESCHLECHT" an der Universität für angewandte Kunst Wien trägt im Studienjahr 2021/22 den Titel "Who has the Freedom to Care, or Not to Care?"

​Sorgearbeit – Instandhalten, Pflegen, Wiederherstellen: Dies verlangen Körper, Psychen, der Raum und die Räume, in denen wir uns bewegen, die Dinge mit denen wir leben. Aber wer kümmert sich? Und unter welchen Bedingungen? / Care work – maintaining, attending to, restoring: all this is required by bodies, psyches, the space and the rooms in which we move, and the things with which we live. But who does the caring? And under which circumstances?

Riikka Prattes
Care in the Service of Whiteness
Interrogating the underbelly of care, Prattes discusses historical cases of uplift and contemporary integration measures of marginalized folks as cases of “inclusive subordination” that are shaped by coloniality and embedded in productivist thinking.

Sophie Lewis
Beyond the (private nuclear) family, and the for-profit care industry, too
Even as “family values” intensified, the importance of care workers became clearer than ever during Covid. However, the for-profit care industry is no antidote to the private nuclear household. In this talk, Sophie Lewis revives more utopian horizons.
