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?

++ Studierende können die Vortragsreihe als Lehrveranstaltung semesterweise absolvieren. / Students can complete the lecture series as a course semester by semester.

Pleasure Against The Machine, Pleasure is Power
Pleasurably obtaining knowledge, fabricating it, and redistributing it, seems to be at the core of an intersectional understanding where knowledges, power and pleasures and pain are interrelated.

Care in the Service of Whiteness

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.

Care-Arbeit ist keine Freiheit.

Für die Philosophin Hannah Arendt ist Freiheit gerade nicht mit (Sorge-)Arbeit zu verbinden. Sie differenziert strikt zwischen privaten/sozialen und politischen Angelegenheiten. Im feministischen Kontext ergibt dies eine unausgelotete Spannung.

Why It's Taking So Long (Notes on Disability Justice)
Care is always a deficit, always insolvent. This is because the body, by definition, is a thing that needs support; it needs food, rest, sleep, shelter, care. And what about redefining the body as a thing that needs, full stop because what else would support be?
