Re:Coding "Take Care" Lab: Caring-Infrastructuring Otherwise
In this lab, we look at the definitions of care that have been in-place and have rapidly changed its meanings during the time of the COVID-19 Pandemic. We will look at the different modalities and the infrastructures of care during the Covid-19 pandemic as interdependent relationships of sharing resources and community networks. We will try to understand and look at the ways to build awareness and the practices of how taking care established itself in the societal politics in the digital world and beyond.
After registration for the lab, you will receive the Zoom link and a chapter from each of the following books Matters of Care: Speculative Ethics in More than Human Worlds by Maria Puig de la Bellacasa and Care Work Dreaming Disability Justice by Leah Lakshmi Piepzna-Samarasinha. These texts will be of use as a contextual framework and won’t be directly discussed in the lab.
