ARTIST NWANDO Ebizie is presenting a new podcast series called For All I Care.
The Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art, Gateshead and Wellcome Collection are pleased to announce their collaboration on the five-part podcast series, reimagining care and healing through art, health and science.
Launching on November 25, 2020, the monthly podcasts will explore ideas for how to care and connect through conversations, artistic works and healing experiences with a range of different contributors.
Each of the five episodes will focus on a distinct theme as an entry point to explore what care means for our bodies, communities, the planet and our futures.
Irene Aristizábal, Head of Curatorial and Public Practice at Baltic and Kieran Swann, Head of Live Programme at Wellcome Collection said; “2020 has highlighted how essential community, stability and caring for ourselves and others are in our lives.
“At the same time, it has given us a lot to think about when it comes to our own fragility.
“That’s why we started this podcast – so we could draw on the perspectives and knowledge of great thinkers, to share thoughts on what care means and how we value it, and do it together at a time when we’re so separated.
“Hopefully, each episode might even feel like a little moment of healing in itself.”
The first episode, premiering on 25 November, will focus on The Mediated Body. Care can be a radical act, a form of resistance and a way of creating community.
The podcast asks, can we start to see illness not as an individual but as a shared experience and enfold it into our understanding of everyday life?
Writer, musician and artist Johanna Hedva will read from their new book, Minerva the Miscarriage of the Brain, that delves into mysticism, madness, motherhood and magic.
Curator Bárbara Rodríguez Muñoz and writer, artist and community organiser Ted Kerr will discuss their work as part of the collective What Would an HIV Doula Do, the ongoing AIDS crisis, and how caring for our own bodies is part of caring for each other.
Artist Helen Collard, whose work is grounded in the yogic concept of prana, will guide listeners through some breathing exercises, offering a moment to listen inwardly and outwardly to others.
