Caring in and against capitalism

7pm – 9pm: Caring in and against capitalism
with Francis Seeck und Ferdiansyah Thajib

In our workshop we will approach the topic of care from a queerfeminist and intersectional perspective. Reflecting on our involvement in Caring for Conflict we would like to discuss how can we  organize care for others and care for ourselves in neoliberal conditions.  How do our own positionalities implicate access to care?  How to navigate between notion self-care as privilege and survival strategy? How to deal with the appropriation of care into capitalist structures?

Francis Seeck is working as an antidiscrimination trainer, author and Phd candidate. They giving workshops and talks on classism, grief, care and gender diversity. In their ethnographic PhD project on collective care work within trans* and non-binary spaces, they invest the role of class and precarity.
