The Museum of Care will be a series of residences distributed worldwide (one of which will be located in Fire Island – the home of David Graeber). We understand the Museum of Care not as a place to archive and preserve things but to create and nurture social relationships. An international network of physical spaces where people can connect, think, write, create and organise

Dear friends,

I have been overwhelmed by the many condolence messages and offers of help. Thank you!

In the weeks before his untimely passing, David and I had started making plans to turn his childhood home on Fire Island, New York, 1/

David & his wife @nikadubrovsky started making plans to turn his childhood home in NY into a place for intellectuals, activists & artists to gather & imagine new futures together.

In loving memory, help this become reality:

Here is a short text about The Museum of Care, that we cowritten with @davidgraeber recently, that can provide a context for our project.

the museum of care – reimagining the world after the pandemic by nika and david

https://davidgraeber.industries/the-museum-of-care-reimagining-world-after-pandemic

originally appeared in Arts Of The Working Class April 2020, Issue 11. PDF

imagine for a moment we are sane and don’t just go back to pretending there’s some reason to have all these people bluffing to make us think they work all day but instead got rid of the bullshit jobs..t

bullshit jobs – dg..

and kropotkin dirty jobs law.. et al

no more supposed to’s of school/work .. suffocating us from the day

Imagine that the experience of lockdown and economic collapse actually allows us to see the world as it really is and we acknowledge that what’s referred to as “an economy” is simply the way we collectively keep each other alive, provision each other with the things we need and generally take care of one another. . t.. Say we also reject the notion of social control.

oikos (the economy our souls crave).. ‘i should say: the house shelters day-dreaming, the house protects the dreamer, the house allows one to dream in peace.’ – gaston bachelard, the poetics of space

Imagine we jettison the idea of production and consumption being the sole purpose of economic life and substitute care and freedom. What would we do with the buildings then?

In a world built around care and solidarity, much of this vast and absurd office space would indeed be blown up, but others could be turned into free city universities, social centers and hotels for those in need of shelter. We could call them ‘Museums of Care’ — precisely because they are spaces that do not celebrate production of any sort but rather provide the space and means for the creation of social relationships and the imagining of entirely new forms of social relations. t

spaces of permission where people have nothing to prove

ie: (our experiment w that) be you house – interview ness.. year 2 – the be you house .. in the city.. as the day.. ness

and our findings:

1\ undisturbed ecosystem (common\ing) can happen

2\ if we create a way to ground the chaos of 8b free people

____________

imagine if we just focused on listening to the itch-in-8b-souls.. first thing.. everyday.. and used that data to augment our interconnectedness.. we might just get to a more antifragile, healthy, thriving world.. the ecosystem we keep longing for..

what the world needs most is the energy of 8b alive people

museum of care.. across the board

so fridays at 1 pm denver time

site for visual city assembly: https://v-a.city/

A Visual Assembly is a democratic form of creative collaboration – used to reimagine and visualise new ways in which to organise the city or the social systems as a whole.

sounds like city sketchup ness et al

and 2 min video of david describing the child like ness of it [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KqoulrutRSk]

liberation for kids is when they get taken seriously

liberation for adults .. can be goofy..

first have to throw off shackles on imagination reverting to child like state..

1 yr to be 5 ness et al

using their own structure of participation as the contents of the city itself

yeah that.. ie: 2 convers as infra

wish we could talk.. wish you could see/hear

We already have eight residences! Now it’s all about rules: how to escape an Airbnb-scenario? How to develop a solidarity network that can guarantee safety, care, inclusion and openness. 1/ https://t.co/5mJpnCiZot

Whether the Visual Assembly (https://t.co/XmCQqHuLGA) in a year’s time will be as alive and broadly supported project as #Carnival4David or the “ExR message” is not clear, but it is an exciting task to think about.5/ https://t.co/cZTcU2uJFx

ExR almost created a language in which we can talk about human feelings. It has nothing to do with political parties, art groups, institutions,
And this is why it worked.
