Se tenir debout avec les infirmières est un projet féministe

"Les syndicats d’ de vingt-huit pays s’attaquent aux gouvernements et à Big Pharma avec une demande simple : renoncer aux sur les contre la -19 et mettre fin à la pandémie dès maintenant. Dans son texte, Silvia Federici appelle les à se rallier aux luttes des travailleuses de la santé."

"Quelle est l’image marquante de la pandémie de la Covid-19 ? À mon avis, c’est celle de l’infirmière au chevet du malade, en première ligne de cette urgence mondiale, surmontant sa propre peur de la maladie pour soigner les patientes et patients et leur apporter du réconfort face à une mort probable. Pour des millions d’infirmières vivant dans des pays où les vaccins contre la Covid-19 demeurent rares, c’est une image de la vie quotidienne. Même dans les pays où le pire de la maladie s’est dissipé, on commence seulement à comprendre le poids de ce travail — jour après jour — sur les épaules des infirmières."

"[...] as a pedagogic project, I find actively uninterested in its own underlying materiality, aspiring instead to a kind of disembodied and bland . Students are encouraged to explore the “world at large” by adding additional layers of in the form of sensors, rather than considering all the ways the technologies they use are already engaged with the world. The project’s “neutral” aesthetics, while dimly echoing a once-radical , ignore the larger pedagogic program of the historical Bauhaus’s engagement and with the materials of its contemporary, technical production."

Dear , , in an institution..

A letter from to everyone facing .
Let’s learn together how to do technology differently!

"Together we witnessed how the recent move to ‘distant learning’ has meant that educational institutions have almost without exception turned to online commercial platforms. What we called ‘an elephant in the room’ only a few months ago, has finally trampled all residual ‘room’ in education. It might feel like the change is sudden, but it has been long in the making..."

Come read with us online, this thursday evening, 23/07, 16:00 - 18:00 CEST. 📚

Varia is hosting two collective reading and conversation sessions. One will be online and one will be in our physical space, as a series of events to discuss matters of abolitionist technology & community-driven systems of accountability, while generating anonymous, consensual debris for stone throw, a temporary online work to share our resources and reflections. We sought texts that are talking about what we want to learn with and about, now.

For our first session we will read from Ruha Benjamin's Race After Technology, choosing chapter 5 Retooling Solidarity, Reimagining Justice to read together. In this chapter, Benjamin examines how practitioners, scholars, activists, artists, and students are working to resist and challenge the New Jim Code (a term Benjamin uses to connect discriminatory technology with past segregationist laws in the Southern states). This chapter also offers suggestions on how to contribute to an approach to technology that moves beyond accessing new products, to advocating for justice-oriented design practices.

These workshops are made with @jules @ccl. 👌

"Well, as in cells and sprouts, growth occurs only at the edges of something. From the peripheries [...]. But even to see the peripheries, it seems, you have to be on them, or by an act of re-vision, place yourself there. Refining and strengthening the judgments you already have will get you nowhere. You must break set. It's either that or remain at the center. The dead, dead center." (Joanna Russ, How to Suppress Women's writing. 1983. p 132)

Next weekend Varia will host a meeting on feminist servers as part of a series called Feminist Hack Meetings.

Let's talk about feminist servers! In this meeting, we invite you to discuss questions like:
What does it mean for a server to be feminist, and how could it look like? What and who does it serve? What does it take to create and maintain it?
We would like to map and draw collectively our ideas and consider the possibility of setting up a feminist server at Varia, as a base for our practice.
We will bring material (like RPis and computers) to start experimenting and trying things out.
Join us!
