Healthcare, art & citizenship
SKOR organizes a two-day symposium on care, art, architecture & citizenship, called “Speculations on the Cultural Organisation of Civility” on October 29-30, 2010 in Amsterdam, Felix Meritis.
“The two-day symposium Speculations on the Cultural Organisation of Civility seeks to connect current debates about care and citizenship in contemporary art, philosophy and politics to realities of healthcare organisation in the Netherlands and internationally. With a focus on healthcare as a prime site of global market-driven transformation in governmental policies, this symposium brings together philosophers, artists, curators and politicians to question the role of art and its assumed ameliorative function.
We ask: If art consensualises the increasingly capitalised infrastructures of public care, can it still act as a critical agent?
The structure of this symposium stages theories and case studies to come hand in hand, providing a significant and radical overview of the field.”
