Open Call No. 8 by Solitude & ZKM

Engineering Care

Curated by Daphne Dragona

Under the title of »Engineering Care«, the call for Web Residencies No. 8 by Solitude & ZKM looked into automated care’s possibilities and limitations, gains and losses. Curator Daphne Dragona invited artists, designers, technologists, and activists to submit proposals for new or ongoing works that capture how we will live and work with machines, and how relationships and dependencies might change. Challenging the common narratives about artificial empathy and the robotic imaginary, it welcomes projects that address care’s economization and instrumentalization, or shed light on forms of radical, collective, and critical care.
