The scholar Joan Tronto introduced the concept of care into political philosophy, arguing for a caring democracy. As part of #Caring of the New Alphabet School the curators invited eight scholars and artists to write public letters to Joan Tronto that share their thoughts on the current state of care during this global pandemic. And Joan responded.
This letter exchange is imagined to make up a landscape of care – as guiding stars in the night sky, a relational map you can read from your own personal position, as we begin our long march to a world imbued with care as norm, as a democratic order. With this emerging map of care you can see how far the concept stretches — and how essential it is as an alternative paradigm.

The artist collective Maternal Fantasies is concerned with the relationship between art, child and motherhood, which until today still receives fairly little attention in society and discourse. Their film Suspended Time, on Caring, developed in the context of the award, invites viewers to question their own ideals and role models. The film will be presented in full length at M.1 on 24 and 25 October.
Another world, post-apocalypse. In their video work Malu Blume (Advancement Award Winner 2019/20) takes the viewer back to the future: The Book of S of I. Chapter One: Creatures born from Hopelessness is a queer feminist sci-fi saga about the desire to belong, about the power of mutual care, bodily pleasures and the yearning for tenderness. The video was realized in collaboration with İpek Hamzaoğlu and Laura Nitsch from HEKATE – Film & Video Collective, Marwa Abou Hatab, Roya Asaadian, Magdalena Fischer, Camila Rhodi, Sofi Utikal and Rosa Wiesauer. The full film will be shown at M.1 on October 24th and 25th.
