Miessen, Markus and Andrea Phillips. Caring Culture: Art, Architecture and the Politics of Public Health

Ram Publications 2012

Book ID: 91921

In an intensive series of texts from a symposium called Speculations on the Cultural Organization of Civility, this book examines changing political uses of the concept of care in democracies. Editors Markus Miessen and Andrea Phillips pose the question of how artists, architects, and designers both contribute to and critique its social manifestations. Includes case studies of artistic and design interventions within health and social care institutions and broader essays and interviews from curators, artists, politicians, architects, and healthcare professionals. The first volume in the Actors, Agents and Attendants series of publications and symposia commissioned by SKOR (the Dutch-based Foundation of Art and Public Domain) to investigate the role of cultural practice in the organization of the public domain.
