Film screening and discussion
Care on Display
Care on Display brings together documentary and artistic films by anthropologists interested in the subject of care for the elderly and for people suffering from dementia. The screenings, which will be followed by a discussion, aim to investigate how films explore notions of access and visibility of ‘care’ as ethical concerns and the intersection between care in the context of material and visual culture and care for the elderly as a subject to be put on display. How to make visible something which is so private and very often perceived as immaterial?
This film series is conceived to continue a seminar series that Dr Gabriela Nicolescu organised in Goldsmiths, Economies of Care and Social Reproduction, in the autumn of 2015, with support from both Goldsmiths and the Wellcome Trust. If that series focused on the creation of a network of social anthropologists and artists working on migration and care work, more generally, the film series proposes a step further in bringing together people interested in putting care work on display, and analysing the effects of visibility, understood in relation to ethics.
