SYLLABUS READING GROUP #8:
THE AUTONOMY OF CARE

Syllabus Reading Group #8: The Autonomy of Care
Thursday 31/03, 19.00 - 21.00

Special guest Marta Pérez, Carenotes Collective
Hosts: Jesse Jones, Barbara Mahlknecht and Danielle van Zuijlen
In English, online / after registration we will send you a copy of the text

In the first session in February we read the preface (by Silvia Federici) to the book For health autonomy by the Carenotes Collective. We're glad to announce that for this second session, one of the authors of the book, Marta Pérez (Madrid University) will join us to introduce the texts.

We will read together a part of the intro - "The Autonomy of Care' and continue with chapters 1 and 5 on autonomous healthcare clinics in Greece. Of course you can also just join and listen in. Welcome!

Marta Pérez works as a professor of Anthropology at Universidad Complutense of Madrid. She has also taught a course in Mobility, Health, and Healthcare Systems at Duke in Madrid for six years. Her work focuses on mobility, healthcare exclusion, and on the relationship among primary care, neoliberal practices, and welfare institutions in Spain and in Southern Europe. She is part of the militant research group Entrar Afuera and participates in the movement for universal healthcare in Madrid.

Since 2020, the Syllabus Reading Group is organized by Kunsthal Gent around the work 'Syllabus' by the Irish artist Jesse Jones: a monumental curtain with the arm of Silvia Federici, creating a space for (activist) gathering.

This season is organized in collaboration with Jesse Jones and feminist researcher Barbara Mahlknecht, around the theme of care - from care work to institutional intimacies. How do we create a culture of care in our everyday encounters and social reproductions?

We gather online, once a month on Thursday nights, from February 24 onwards. We will read and discuss a new text every month. By the end of each meeting we suggest several texts and decide together what we will read next time. You can also just join and listen in. Welcome!

SUMMER 2022
The Syllabus reading groups lead up to a live Syllabus Summer School Retreat, to take place in Kunsthal Gent in July 2022. This live Summer school aims to ask the question: How do we return to a space of shared cultural community after two years of lockdown?
