CARE-WORK: Space, Bodies, and the Politics of Care


The Institution is a Proposition in CARE-WORK: Space, Bodies, and the Politics of Care examines how concepts of care across multiple disciplines have redefined the boundaries between our bodies, our collective structures, and our environments. Through these frames, the symposium interrogates architecture’s relationship to care work as an intimate alliance between the built environment and its embedded material, social, and labor practices. Panel discussions explore architecture’s capacity to unearth and cultivate new forms for care, unpacking the intersection between space, subjectivity, and solidarity.

Organized by Brittany Utting, Assistant Professor, Rice Architecture, March 3rd 2021.
