Archive Shelf Location BALTIC2020M
Publication Date 25 Nov 2020
Description

Right now, caring for our bodies is essential. Care can be a radical act, a form of resistance and a way of creating community. 

The guests for this episode are Bárbara Rodríguez Muñoz, curator of exhibitions at Wellcome Collection; artist and community organiser Tedd Kerr; artist, musician and writer Johana Hedva and artist Helen Collard. 

Episode Notes

In this episode listen to writer, musician and artist Johanna Hedva 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 discuss Kerr’s 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.

Take care of yourself and take a moment to listen inwardly and outwardly to others for some breathing exercises, as we join artist Helen Collard, whose work is grounded in the yogic concept of prana.

A BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art and Wellcome Collection collaboration. Presented by Nwando Ebizie. Music by Nkisi. Sound by Axel Kacoutié. A Reduced Listening Production, produced by Katherine Godfrey and exec produced by Alannah Chance.
