An injured collective researches infrastructures of care in pandemic times. At its center is the fictitious member of the collective, INGRID. The body of the collective, scattered in the imaginary and in space, was not able to be complete for a long time. One year ago at the Web_Hospital presented at District in the form of a continuous rehearsal, DFS recorded Trailer without trailer. In Alive (Hospita(ly)tis) the sounds of that continuous rehearsal appear on vinyl as well as current recordings on which DFS improvise as a testimony and echo of the fragmentation experienced during the pandemic.
In the quarantine of the hospital, patients are separated from each other to prevent infection. A similar isolation is being demonstrated by windows in video chat and web screens during the pandemic. We do not confront this crisis of care and the commons with autonomy or independence, but with dependence on each other and the audience, the search for healing closeness.
Alive (Hospita(ly)tis) is the first event of the On Illness, Resistance and Modes of Collective (Health) Care,a research project by District * School without Center kindly supported by the Berlin Senate Department for Culture and Europe.
