Practices of Radical Health Care

Feminist Health Care Research Group

In their talk for the Sick Bed Series, Feminist Health Care Research Group (Julia Bonn/Inga Zimprich) will share some examples of their research on the health movement. This social and political movement had emerged at the intersection of second wave feminism and the squatting scene in West-Berlin during the late 1970s and early 1980s. By proposing new working models like doctor's and patient's collectives and organising the dissatisfaction of professionals and patients alike the health movement challenged the health care system. Julia and Inga will combine these examples of alternative and feminist health practices with workshop-like elements so that we can check-in with our own radical imagination for collective care practices.
