Syllabus Summer School Day 3:
Envisioning 'Care' after the Covid19 Pandemic

11.00 - 13.00
Filmscreening,
followed by discussion lead by Barbara Mahlknecht (English)

Marlies Pöschl, Aurore, 2019
FR/AT, 2K video, 21 min, colour, 5.1 sound

María Ruido, Estado de malestar (State of Distress), 2018-2019
Video, 63 min, colour, sound

This event brings together films discussing the contradications and potentials to the organization and infrastructures of care in neoliberal capitalism. María Ruido's State of Distress (2018-2019) reflects on the social conditions of mental health that are experienced as a private one, albeit connected with the burden of job insecurity, eternal uncertainty and extreme individualism.

Marlies Pöschl's semi-documentary science-fiction Aurore (2019) envisions the future of care and the automatization of affect in elderly care. These works, released before the Covid19 pandemic, set a perspective from which to discuss the socio-political framings, challenges and collective learnings in the wake of the Covid19 pandemic.
