Departing from vulnerability
Reclaiming self-empowering strategies in health care
Inga Zimprich (Feminist Health Care Research Group)
Inga Zimprich will discuss the practice of the Feminist Health Care Research Group, and think about vulnerability and illness as particular places and practices of knowledge. She will ask what self-empowering, mutual care work we wish to reclaim as feminists and cultural workers. Lastly she would like to critically look at the institutions framing of our practices –– either the health care system or, in the case of the Feminist Health Care Research Group, the art field –– asking how these enable or hinder emancipatory political practices.
