Topic group: BIOTECHNOLOGY AND –ART
As part of the project Organ of Radical Care: Una Matriz Colaborativa, artists Charlotte Jarvis and Dr. Patrica Saragueta held an outdoor demonstration in which they transported the protagonist of their work: a collective uterus. This artistic project is a site of reflection on the future of reproduction. To support the artists’ approach, we took part in a soft demonstration in which we tried to take care of the collective uterus, take care of the artists who generously welcomed us to their performative experiment, take care of each other, and take care of ourselves.
Numerous questions about radical care were raised through the creative process, and we wanted to extend our performance of care through time and space. In order to do so, we have built a care booth (a temporary installation that took the shape of a fort) in which we invited the students of the Founding Lab to answer one question: How do you care? Their answers were archived in the form of sound clips, written testimonies, and drawings.
Through a soft and intimate approach, we hope that all visitors will experience the queer nature of our collective and, with that, contemplate the possible non-normative future of reproduction. We invite you to sit or stand in our booth and listen to our testimonies and interpretations of care.
