Cosa ha significato e significa partecipazione nel percorso basagliano? Consiste nella radicale trasformazione delle istituzioni, della cultura e della società in cui si collocano e a cui contribuiscono a dare forma, per perseguire obiettivi di salute e giustizia sociale.
We published these notes in the Special Issue of Ephemera Journal, Theory & Politics in Organisation, "Repair Matters". Here, we shared the questions and challenges around care and health that emerged in our research project, with a specific emphasis on the common ethics of emancipation in institutional critique. We asked ourselves how institutions are caring for the people in our critical present and toward a horizon of change.
Last year, the Scottish magazine “The Drouth” and “Vessel Art Project” asked us to share some reflections about our research, Entering Outside, as a multi-site and multi-format dialogue among critical practices of healing and caring in the south of Europe.
There are different models: on one side Trieste, with an extraordinary accumulation of knowledge and experience in the field of health, which is currently confronted with the national restriction of welfare, with political and administrative interlocutors that aren’t especially friendly, and recently with the social situation in which we lack movements that might allow us to play in new ways with the relationship between the inside and the outside of the institutions; on the other side there are the Greek experiences, which are extraordinarily capable of innovation in the field of what Rotelli calls the “contraptions”, the “artefacts”, the “engineering”. However, these kinds of experiences are born and develop out of absolute emergencies, so their longevity is always in question.
