Care Project Update April 2020

To all our Care Project participants and those interested in the Care Network: like everyone we are working out how to adapt to this strange new world. Our original plan was to host a series of exhibitions this year on care, ethics and feminism, to expose how artists imagine alternatives to neo-liberal politics by practising through and with care. Those planned exhibitions will hopefully still go ahead, postponed to negotiated times most likely next year. Once we have a clearer sense of schedule, we will publish here. We are also still intending to pursue publication of an edited anthology on Care and Art: thanks to those who have submitted abstracts: the drafting of the proposal has been somewhat interrupted by events but is still in process so we will contact you shortly. We will be uploading material from the symposium here soon, as well as some additional pieces of writing and art, so please contact us if you would like to contribute. It has been stunning to see how this crisis has foregrounded the very issues driving the case for a care values revolution: what is essential could not be clearer. And hence the timeliness, the urgency, of care art and discourse.
