Vortragsreihe "Kunst - Forschung - Geschlecht"

 

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? Die Pandemie hat nun allen überdeutlich gezeigt, dass keine Verteilungsgerechtigkeit herrscht – Sorgearbeit wird vermehrt von Frauen ausgeführt, wird vielfach schlecht entlohnt oder ist unbezahlt.
Die Gastvorträge nehmen unterschiedliche Bereiche von Care Work in den Blick, beleuchten das Spannungsfeld zwischen eingeschränkter, entzogener oder scheinbar selbstbestimmter neuer Freiheit zum Sorgen und fragen: Was ist zu tun?

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? The pandemic has now made it blatantly obvious to everybody that there is no fair distribution – care work is increasingly carried out by women, it is often poorly paid or unpaid. The guest lectures focus on various areas of care work; they highlight the tension between limited, withdrawn, or a seemingly self-determined new freedom to care and they pose the question: What is to be done?

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.
