Everyday Carnival

This article is a part of the room: Carnival4David, Carnival: reading group and talks

By wearing maskswe show that who we are is not as important as what we want, and what we want is everything for everyone.

David Graeber

Choose Yourself. Change who you are. Make yourself someone else.

This room is an experiment. Can we protect our vulnerability and maintain our openness by playing with identity? What options do we have?

  • Wearing masks
  • Swap accounts during online meetings?
  • Organize regular carnivals?

The Museum of Care was born as an idea of openness and solidarity. After all, the best answer to the injustice of death, loneliness, and ultimately one’s own limitations is to connect and mutually support each other! I grew up in a society where secrecy was part of everyday life and I wanted to avoid that at the Museum of Care.

The Museum of Care practices online publication of all our Reading Groups and Assemblies.
We try our best to be transparent and open. After all, we are not an institution, a corporation, or a foundation. We are created for a general public, to share and to produce horizontal knowledge.

However, it is clear that this position makes everyone vulnerable. Any education is first and foremost a political position. Our members live in different countries, with different political regimes, and we have different attitudes toward Privacy and the level of acceptable security.

Our project was born out of Carnival4David, which we understand as a political gesture.
This room – will collect masks and stories about identities.
