Nov 11, 2019 7:00pm - 8:30pm talk/event
Ellen Mara De Wachter, writer and author of Co-Art (Phaidon, 2016), invites curator Nora Heidorn and visual artist Jade Montserrat to consider and discuss self-care and mutual care within collaborative and creative practices.
Over the past few years, Audre Lorde’s maxim that self-care is ‘an act of political warfare’ has been invoked in a range of different contexts and for a surprising array of purposes. Some might say Lorde’s concept of ‘self-care’ has been co-opted by the wellness industry, while others argue that the demands of contemporary life and the cultural industries leave us with no choice but to retreat and look after ourselves. What effect is this having on social and collaborative processes and outputs?
This discussion programmed alongside Jerwood Collaborate!, will draw on recent exhibitions by curator Nora Heidorn (‘Sick & Desiring’, Bergen Assembly, 2019) and artist Jade Montserrat (‘Instituting Care‘, Bluecoat, Liverpool, 2019) to explore a range of creative responses to social, economic and industry pressures, such as doing less, doing nothing, and balancing engagement with abstention and refusal.

Apr 3 - Jun 6, 2020 FINAL WEEK
The Jerwood/FVU Awards are a major annual opportunity for moving-image artists run in partnership by Jerwood Arts and FVU. They were established in 2012 in response to a need for significant major commissions for early-career moving-image artists at an unproven stage in their practice, and contribute to an ongoing dialogue around urgent or timely concerns within moving image through the curatorial theme which changes with each edition.
Jerwood/FVU Awards 2020: Hindsight premieres two newly commissioned moving-image installations by Guy Oliver and Reman Sadani, the recipients of this seventh edition of the Awards.
