A place to research. A place to be. A place to care for and be cared for.
May 09 - 12
MOHA, an art collective known for their interdisciplinary approach, is collaborating with district nurses from the local organisation 4beimir/Futur Uno in Moabit to create a temporary space together, called "Who Cares?". The two groups have been meeting for several months, discussing and envisioning different ways to care. As a result of that "Who Cares?" is not only an art project, but also a practice, a tryout, and a proposition. A place to research. A place to be. A place to care for and be cared for.
From May 09 to 12, "Who Cares?" will be open to the public, offering a variety of activities and experiences. These include master classes led by nurses, a performance of care gestures which usually happen privately at home, but this time in public, the launch of a new care dictionary, home cooked dinners and palinka, a film screening and a ceremonial dance.
MOHA, consisting of artists Alice, Olivia, and Zsófi, is known for their resilient and diverse approach to art. Their work merges multiple fields such as urbanism, anthropology, social choreography, magic realism, performance art, guerrilla art, care work, and activism. They operate in a same-but-unique way, being present in the same location day after day, week after week, becoming part of the local routines and landscape. Their collaborations with various individuals and groups in the community, from artists and curators to shopkeepers, at-home mothers, scientists, homeless people, cleaners, social workers, and nurses, inform their public outcomes. In addition to being part of their art collective MOHA, they worked several years in healthcare.
With "Who Cares?" MOHA aims to shift our focus from the new, sensational or exotic to the existing infrastructure and the work involved: the day-to-day work of maintenance, care and repair.
