Future Clinic for Critical Care presents: HOME

Jeremy Wade & Nina Mühlemann

free entrance / reservation required:
duration: 3 hours / food & drinks are part of the performance

There is no place like home - and yet, what makes a home? Is it where the heart is? Is it fixed with concrete or is it an ever-shifting work in progress? Unfortunately, as a concept, its often super fixed, fenced in by outdated stories, locked up inside gendered norms, nationalism and the frigid care of impermeable institutions. Is there an alternative vision of home that is more welcoming? Can we rethink home for complicated times? How is it possible to care for someone outside the familiar or the familial? What is it like to care for a complete stranger?

For the fourth edition of FCCC Zurich, a sexy and diverse group of battlefield nurses invite you over to our home. Its fictional, but the delicious vegan dinner we have made and the issues bring to the table are real. We are serving some hot politically charged queer, crip and nomadic forms of home-making that will make your heels and wheels click. Together we shatter the hierarchies of hospitality and care, which often put disabled and non-majority folks at the least favorable seat at the table. Not in this house honey! Join us and bring your appetite for critical care in the future!

Featuring: Jeremy Wade, Nina Mühlemann, Eddie Ramirez, Rosana Cade, RR Marki (Roma Jam Session Art Kollektiv), Claudine Wyss and The Architectural Care Group (ETH Zurich).

The Future Clinic for Critical Care (FCCC) is a socio-cultural animated practice exploring the messy politics of care. We use fiction, feminist strategies of world making, subvertizing, and activist trickster tactics to dream otherwise about more inclusive/ less violent futures. We negotiate our different backgrounds and abilities with sensitivity, awareness and a fierce sense of humor inviting local and international activists, social workers, care providers and people receiving care to present personal stories, interventions of theater, dance, social political/theoretical lectures «that everyone can understand», drag shows «that are highly theoretical» participatory encounters and performative installations. FCCC Zurich took place three times in 2018, and now we’re back by popular demand with three more events this year including a weekend end blowout in November cause «you like us, you really like us.»
