The term ‘care’ is a defining characteristic that separates humans from machines. This project by the collective Forms of Ownership consists of three individual works (single screen and paper works) that look at different aspects of care:

  • The Care Manifesto: Proposal for an Exhibition (Vienne Chan, Boris Oicherman)
    A model for a parallel currency to promote a care-based economy
  • Instructions for Proper Care (Alan Cunningham)
    Care as physical embodiment beyond codification
  • Propaganda Office (OPA (Obsessive Possessive Aggression))
    A model to disarm conspiracy theories

This work was realised within the framework of the European Media Art Platforms (EMAP) programme at m-cult (FI) with support of the Creative Europe Culture Programme of the European Union.
