HARD CARE explores the fringes of care; that which is kept hidden from view or seen as deviant. It rejects care as soft and passive, and acknowledges the hardship involved in some acts of keeping well. HARD CARE proposes new language and aesthetics for care, using the internet as a home for these non-normative expressions.
This social imaginary makes visible people, acts and places of care that sit outside the norm. HARD CARE acknowledges the tenacity involved in living with chronic illnesses, the potential care provided by sex workers, and the ability for any one of us to find care through unofficial sources. The work sits at the intersection of queerness, disability and a number of 'othered' voices.
