Abstract:
Design with Care

This presentation draws on some of the considerations that went into curating Senses of Care, the current exhibition that I co-organized at CALIT2 gallery. I’m interested in how design comes into play in maintaining and breaking down normative understandings of ability and caring. My focus is not on the quality of “care” in design work, or design as a way of addressing or meeting the needs of caregivers. Rather, I raise some questions about the interplay and frictions among design, social conceptions health and (dis)ability, and practices of care. How can design structure the visibility or transparency of caregiving and interdependency? What is the place of design within the projects of disability activism and disability studies?
