Taking the meanings of curare – to care and to cure – which form the etymological root of the word "curating", we approach interdependencies in care as ethico-political and corpo-material relations.
Acknowledging that care is always implicated in the given, ecologies of care work on conflicts related to care and towards the freedom and joy to care, and aspire to new public imaginaries of care.
How to develop new modes of art and cultural practice that enable meaningful social and environmental encounters and create lasting and transformative relations? How do we avoid greenwashing and carewashing, and instead establish meaningful ecologies of care? What examples can we learn from?
