Marija Marić with Ana Miljački Live Webcast

Amidst the “breakdown all around” that characterizes our contemporary experiential and epistemic reality—to study care is, itself, an act of care. Paraphrasing thus Shannon Mattern’s recent statement on maintenance and with a nod to the history of the feminist celebration of the same, in the Conversations on Care series (launched in the fall of 2019), the Critical Broadcasting Lab and Ana Miljački collaborate with the stewards of the architectural public sphere, whose work and platforms traverse different media of architectural broadcasting, from galleries and journals to listservs and podcasts. Conversation as a format of engagement necessarily operates through co-production, which in turn, helps us temper our own megaphones, while we examine the contemporary motivations, politics, interests, as well as the privilege of the caring subjects involved in curatorial, editorial and activist forms of work.
