Part of 'The KACA Projects' a collaboration between myself and artist Caroline Austin. http://www.karikeashworth.com/...
The KACA Projects are inspired by Michel Serres’s foundational work that explores how human relations are identical to that of the parasite to the host body. Serres’s arguments are that by being pests, minor groups can become major players in public dialogue. Within this frame, The KACA Projects tries to intervene in public dialogue—creating diversity and complexity vital to human life and thought.
An online symposium exploring ideas of basic income and the need for an approach to economy that puts creativity and care at its centre. Led by a panel of artists, researchers, economists, scientists and philosophers, the symposium responds to current and ongoing planetary crises, and positions creativity and social ecology as integral to shaping policy and systems of value.
