This workshop focuses on time, which is one of the most important components in interpersonal relationships – "taking time", "being there for each other" is an indispensable part of a caregiving. Further information will follow.
About the workshop leader
Julieta Aranda (*1975 in Mexico City, lives and works in New York and Berlin) studied film at the School of Visual Arts from 1996 to 2001 and at Columbia University, New York, until 2006. Together with the artist Anton Vidokle, she founded the Internet platform e-flux, which was followed by further projects such as the video archive e-flux rental and Pawnshop. Together they publish the online magazine e-flux Journal. Since 2010, Aranda and Vidokle have been collaborating on the project Time / Bank, in which time is traded as an alternative currency to money. Aranda's artistic practice often deals with the concept of time. When the ground becomes exposed (2017) deals with the possibility of a calculation of time that moves outside human scales and, in the sense of a critique of anthropocentrism, looks at global contexts to which people are subjected, but which also have a decisive influence on them. Most recently, her works have been on display: Fridericianum, Kassel (2015); Berlin Biennale (2014); documenta, Kassel (2012); Venice Biennale (2011); Portikus, Frankfurt/Main (2011); Liverpool Biennale (2010); Guggenheim Museum, New York (2009); Museo Carrillo Gil, Mexico City (2009); Youth Salon, The House of Artists, Zagreb (2008); Lyon Biennale (2007).
The workshop is open to all who care for other people privately, professionally or voluntarily or who receive care from others themselves - be it at home, in schools, hospitals, day care centres, social projects, etc. With a joint lunch and child care on site (on request). Free accomodation possible for participants from further away. The workshop is free, please register at Sascia Bailer firstname.lastname@example.org or call 04826 850 110.
Part of the workshop series Care for Caregivers
Care work is varied, but the challenges are often the same: chronic overload, lack of support, increased isolation. In a series of workshops led by artists, topics such as trust, communal support, self-esteem and recognition are therefore at the forefront. The participants are given tools and knowledge that they can integrate into their everyday lives. Recognition, exchange and networking of local care workers will be made possible – and care will be provided for those people who mostly care. The workshop series is part of Sascia Bailer's curatorial programme at the Arthur Boskamp-Stiftung. As Artistic Director 2019/2020, she focuses on care work, community and solidarity.
