The next appointment with the MoneyLab #8 streaming series is set for Monday, 1 June at 5 PM CET.
The panel Care: Solidarity is Disobedience foresees the participation of Tomislav Medak as representative of the Pirate.Care research project, which focuses on autonomous responses to the current assistance crisis; the artist and activist Cassie Thornton of the Feminist Economics Department, who will talk about the feminist social health care project The Hologram that aims to provide responsibility, attention and solidarity as a source of long-term care; and the cultural activist and co-founder of the autonomous cultural centre in MACAO in Milan Maddalena Fragnito, that will present the experience of Soprasotto, a parent-managed kindergarten based in Milan since 2013. The moderation of the event is entrusted to the director of the Rijeka-based cultural association Drugo more, Davor Mišković.
Neoliberal policies have re-organised the basic care provisions previously considered cornerstones of democratic life – healthcare, housing, access to knowledge, right to asylum, freedom of mobility, social benefits, etc. – turning them into tools for surveilling, excluding and punishing the most vulnerable, reframing the family unit as the sole bearer of responsibility for dependents. In the light of these processes, a growing wave of initiatives has been questioning the political and economic framework of care and experimenting with its collective reorganisation.
