AMNIO-TECHNICS IN THE TIME OF CORONA?/
Online Talk with Sophie Lewis

How has the Covid-19 pandemic illuminated radical perspectives on reproductive justice, the capitalist care emergency, ecology, and the private nuclear household? In this talk, followed by a discussion, Sophie Lewis will respond orally to a selection of artistic works proposed to her by Plataforma UMA, with reference to the abovementioned issues and her concept of watery, "amniotechnical" comradeliness.
