From Ethics to the Aesthetics of Care : Antikeres
Sílvia Muñoz d’Imbert

The last part of the Trilogia de la privadesa, Antikeres (Anti-Keres), arises from Marga Ximénez and Nora Ancarola’s need to make the invisible visible, lend a voice to that which is silenced, recall that which is forgotten and in general, view the world surrounding us from a different perspective. In this work, focusing on the concept of care, the artists decided to “care for” (curate) the contributions of collaborators, whom they sought from among artists and professionals in different spheres who had some connection to them and MXEspai 1010, contributions that, at the same time, delved into personal experiences in caring.

Yet in Antikeres, Marga Ximénez and Nora Ancarola are not only seeking to gather individual experiences of care, but rather to go beyond and, on the basis of these concrete experiences, induce us to make a profound reflection on the provision of care as applied to both the private and the public spheres.

What does providing care in the public sphere mean? What do we mean when we speak of the ethics of care?
