Book Launch: Art, Labour, Text and Radical Care

March 8 @ 4:00 pm 6:30 pm

Join us at 4pm on 8th March to celebrate the launch of the new book Art, Labour Text and Radical Care by Dr Adam Walker, published by Routledge.

Through developing an ethical-methodological approach of ‘radical care’, Art, Labour Text and Radical Care explores how critical artistic practice might contribute to the materialisation of more equal, more collectively fulfilling, possibilities of being. The chapters trace a set of interweaving lineages perpetuating inequalities: through labour, the body, and onto-epistemology. Art’s all too frequent a-criticality, cooption, or even complicity amidst these lineages is observed, and radical care and the disruptive arttext are developed as twin aspects of an alternative, resistant framework.

Alongside a presentation by Adam sharing some of the book’s core arguments, Dr Danielle Child and Drs Pil and Galia Kollectiv will share some of their research, after which there will be a panel discussion focussed on art’s present position and alternative possibilities within structures of labour.

The presentations and discussion will be followed by drinks and light refreshments.
