Kelly Campbell: Scott Wachal Memorial Talk
THE LABOUR OF LIVING (A LIVEABLE LIFE) | Kelly Campbel
7pm, Wednesday 5 April 2017
This is an ongoing project exploring, documenting, and participating in the continuous process of building and destroying livable lives under capitalism and global colonialism through queer interdependence.
To prepare for the presentation, please contemplate the following questions: How does one build a livable life? What is necessary to do this? What is the relationship between giving and receiving care, the ability to give and receive care, and one’s ability, gender, race, and historically mitigated access to resources? How does space, both physical and online, shaped by capitalism and colonialism, impact our experience of care? What is the relationship between practical and emotional labour? How is our labour of care exploited? What happens when we do not receive the care we need?
