'Care and Crisis' with Kim Trogal

Date uploaded: March 14, 2014

As part of the Haystacks series of events organised by Kathrin Böhm, Kim Trogal will present ‘Care and crisis: ethical economies in subsistence practices’, exploring questions around the emotional and ethical aspects of our economies. The talk will take place Thursday 20th March from 7pm to 9pm at the Open School East, London.

"Whilst it might sound strange to speak of the relation of money and feelings, the economic aspects of our lives structure our relations (and spaces) in ways that are often not perceptible. Via an abridged history of the English commons, mutual aid in a rural German village and some of the subsistence practices of Romanian women, the paper suggests that to be resilient again today, we need to (re)embed our economies in our everyday lives."

Kim Trogal is a teacher at the Sheffield School of Architecture. Her PhD research, ‘Caring For Space’ focuses particularly on new, ethical spatial practices using feminist methods and concepts. She is currently working with Irena Bauman and Doina Petrescu, developing a new research platform in the School of Architecture, on local resilience.
