Print Launch of TERN.2: Maintenance! Domestics as Institutional Becomings at Hopscotch Reading Room
Location: Kurfürstenstraße 14/Haus B, 10785 Berlin
With readings from: Elena Agudio, Renée Akitelek Mboya and Pol Merchan.
We are glad to present for the first time printed copies of the print and digital publication The Endotic Reader N.2: Maintenance! Domestics as Institutional Becomings at Hopscotch Reading Room in Berlin. Titled after our last year’s public program at The Institute for Endotic Research, TERN.2 opens doors and windows to the myriad ideas that underpin it.
With TERN.2, we turn to the domestic sphere, which today has become an especially important site of production. In recent years we have seen the domestic sphere, often in relation to care, work as a model for institutions, which also always depend on reproductive labor. Indeed the domestic model has many problematic aspects, such as exploitation and nonrecognition of labor and rights. It is perhaps in the tension between its conflicts and possibilities where the power of the domestic lies. The domestic is also where possible paths for the reorganization of institutions can be uncovered.
