One of the things I’m currently chewing on:
Lately I find myself thinking a lot about “care”.
How to care, how to be caring and how the (capilatistic) wellness industry has seized the "concept of self-care” (≠ consuming “beauty” products).
But what about caring for others? A friend once told me, if you want to find out how a society, a country, a nation thinks and acts, what values they hold important – you need to take a closer look at how they treat their elders.
How do we treat our elders?
On this (broad) matter, I’m currently reading this:
On Care. A Journey into the Relational Nature of Artists' Residencies
My next solo artist date:
The Bigger Picture: Design – Frauen – Gesellschaft
What I’m currently (re-)reading:
Radikale Zärtlichkeit by Şeyda Kurt
What I’m listening at the moment:
A quote by a random person
"If we are going to survive, we are going to need to tie our roots to other roots."
Have a good rest of the week and take care.
