Taller LABoral

A practical workshop based on La cura: everything, an AOS installation to reflect upon the bio-politics of data and interfaces.

“The cure is in the society”, this statement is repeated once and again in the video that presents this video and refers to a committed society that bears in mind the situation of its members. When Salvatore Iaconesi (Italian robotics engineer and artist) was diagnosed with a cancer, he created Cura Open Source, a page where he requests users to find a cure for him, but not only in medical terms.

This activity is aimed at designing and producing a technical tool that enables users to research about disease and cure, with the purpose of giving patients and those accompanying them an active and visible role.

During this workshop an online platform in Spanish will be created to share resources and research that, upon completion of the workshop, can be used independently by the community.

 

Conducted by: Salvatore Iaconesi and Orihana Persico, AOS - Art is Open Source (IT)
Aimed to: patients, health professionals and accompanying persons.
Participants: 10
Dates and hours: March 2017
