How can care be an interdependent modality? What is the role of ongoing care in these times of crises? Can we orchestrate a collective closeness through systems of care? The etymology of care is derived from the Latin word curare meaning to cure, heal, and curate. So what are the intertwinements of curating and caring? Whether ruminating on viral care and collective care within cultural institutions (iLiana Fokianaki), intimate bodies, healing, and vulnerability (Irmgard Emmelhainz, Zdenka Badovinac) or love and feminism (Maria Lind), to care is to recognize all bonds, between both humans and non-humans; between humans and their systems, their infrastructures and institutions, and to attend to their fragility, carefully.
