Caring Culture: Art, Architecture and the Politics of Public Health

Andrea Phillips, Markus Miessen (eds.)

This book, published by Sternberg Press, and edited by Andrea Phillips and Markus Miessen, examines changing political uses of the concept of care in neoliberal democracies and asks how artists, architects, and designers both contribute to and attempt to critique its social manifestations. The publication brings together case studies of artistic and design interventions within health and social care institutions and broader political and philosophical essays and interviews relating to civic wellbeing. Contributors include curators, artists, politicians, architects, and healthcare professionals.
