exp. 2: Radical Health Care: Between Archive and Practice

Presentation by the Feminist Health Care Research Group (Inga Zimprich/Julia Bonn)

he Feminist Health Care Research Group (FHCRG) has built a growing research exhibition during its work around the health movement, including documents, collages, and interviews. It provides insights into radical proposals for mutual health care, particularly since the 1970s. An archive such as this establishes new relationships, for instance between those who share their knowledge and experiences within it, and those who wish to question and use that knowledge today. The FHCRG also raises questions about the political legibility of this archive. What possibilities for action result from the research? What kind of wishes can we articulate by it? Which missing parts can we attend to together, and which practices do we want to take up and pursue further?

On this guided tour through the research exhibition, Inga Zimprich and Julia Bonn discuss individual examples from the health movement with the visitors, in order to ask what makes them relevant for us today.
