The Future Of Care
Chloë Bass and Hannah Zeavin
August 31, 2021 | 6:00 - 7:00pm EDT
While a greater recognition of the need for care emerged over the last year, modes of care have become increasingly technological and at screen’s length from our embodied lives; when we are in-person, we too are distant. Join artist Chloë Bass and scholar and critic Hannah Zeavin for a conversation about the many meanings of care, care’s potential violence, and the renewed importance of translating between digital and material form.
The first 150 registered attendees who provided a mailing address received a package created by artist Chloë Bass.
About the Speakers
Chloë Bass is a multiform conceptual artist working in performance, situation, conversation, publication, and installation. Her work uses daily life as a site of deep research to address scales of intimacy: where patterns hold and break as group sizes expand. She has held numerous fellowships and residencies, most recently from the Center for the Humanities (CUNY), Montalvo Arts Center, Art Matters, and Denniston Hill. Her recent projects and performances have been presented nationally and internationally at such venues as The Studio Museum in Harlem, The Pulitzer Arts Foundation, BAK (Basis voor Actuele Kunst), Kunsthalle Wilhelmshaven, The Knockdown Center, The Kitchen, The Brooklyn Museum, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Museum of Modern Art, and Temple Contemporary, among others. Her exhibition, The Parts, is currently on view at the Brooklyn Public Library where she is their 2021 Katowitz-Radin Artist-in-Residence.
Hannah Zeavin is a Lecturer in the Departments of English and History at the University of California, Berkeley and is a faculty affiliate of the University of California at Berkeley Center for Science, Technology, Medicine, and Society and on the Berkeley Center for New Media's Executive Committee. Additionally, she is a visiting fellow at the Columbia University Center for the Study of Social Difference. Zeavin’s books The Distance Cure: A History of Teletherapy (August 2021) and Mother’s Little Helpers: Technology in the American Family (2023) are both published by MIT Press. Zeavin serves as an Editorial Associate for The Journal of the American Psychoanalytic Association. She received her B.A. from Yale University and her Ph.D. from the Department of Media, Culture, and Communication at NYU.
