Feminist Health Care Research Group
(Julia Bonn/Inga Zimprich)
As artistic research project the Feminist Health Care Research Group (FHCRG) develops exhibitions, workshops and publishes zines. It aims to create space in which we can share vulnerability with each other, center (access) needs and break through the competitive mode of working in the arts. FHCRG questions the internalized, ableist concept of productivity that is rewarded in the art field.
In their practice FHCRG aims to develop self-empowering feminist perspectives on health care. Their recent project Practices of Radical Health Care (since 2018) is dedicated to the health movement which had emerged at the intersection of second wave feminism and the squatting scene in West-Berlin during the seventies and eighties. Working with found and archived documents, interviews and workshops FHCRG aims to retrieve and archive radical practices of mutual care of the health movement and actualize them in the frame of intergenerational exchange and workshops with today's health care activists, cultural workers and feminist and activist predecessors.
Currently the Feminist Health Care Research Group consist of artist, mother and body worker Julia Bonn (*1975) and artist, mother, curator and care-assistant Inga Zimprich (*1979).
