[the Eponym] Collective Care



at Saas-Fee Summer Institute of Art

In this class we will experience a somatheory exercise, and conceptualize a mobile app on care.
Care as ecological strategy, as form of maintenance, as antidote against programmed obsolescence. Care for oneself and others trough politics of vulnerability. Care as an affirmative practice and as an empowerment tool.

The class will be divided in two parts. A Somatheory Encounter: a collective and participatory experiment in embodying theoretical configurations through breathing and body-awareness techniques.
A Collective-Thinking Exercise: a case-study for a mobile app on Care. We will explore and sketch solutions for an open-source, participatory, community-based, privacy-aware application, with focus on our sense of collectivity.
