CARE-WORK: Space, Bodies, and the Politics of Care, a virtual symposium at the Rice School of Architecture, will examine how the concept of care has reshaped the relationship between our bodies, our social structures, and our environments. If we define care work as an act of maintenance performed daily, then architecture itself could be considered a form of care—one that produces an intimate alliance between space and the bodies that occupy it. While any discussion about care today must deal directly with how COVID-19 has profoundly restructured our communal bonds, this symposium asks: how can architecture cultivate social ecologies centered around forms of support rather than extraction? By framing these forms of careful labor as a space of political imagination, these presentations and panel discussions will examine architecture’s capacity to create new platforms for mutual care. All lectures are free and open to the public. Please be sure to register online for each lecture to receive the link to join.
