Museum of Care and the David Graeber Institute cordially invite you to the opening of a new season that will include an exhibition, movie screening, carnival, and party. Join us on September 16, 2023, for assembling together, co-creation, caring for each other, and food sharing.

DGI Cinema launch

DGI Cinema is a project dedicated to public screenings of science fiction movies. On September 16, we will open DGI Cinema with one of David Graeber’s favourite films, a 2005 space western called “Serenity.” “Serenity” is a continuation of the television series “Firefly.” The story is set in the 26th century and follows the crew of the spaceship Serenity as they navigate a renegade lifestyle.

The event will feature talks by science-fiction writers. The first 50 seats will be available on a first-come-first-served basis.

APT ART exhibition

The second APT ART exhibition will be dedicated to climate emergency and science fiction, timed to coincide with the opening of the new season of the David Graeber Institute and the Museum of Care. It will serve as a follow-up to “50 Years of Protest Posters in the UK,” the first APTART exhibition organized by the Museum of Care and the Museum of Unrest. This exhibition will explore the concept of Carnival, that may include the reflection of which can tip over into dreams of equality, of rearranging the social order, or of violence. We also reflect on war, which is an alternative to Carnival. 

Climate Emergency workshops

We hosted our first poster-making workshop during the launch of the David Graeber Institute in October 2022. In September, three artists will be delivering workshops for both children and adults: Clive Russell (Extinction Rebellion), Michael Collins (Paris68redux), and Nika Dubrovsky.


In addition, we will centre the upcoming Carnival around the theme of climate change. Our plan is to distribute eco-friendly clothing to participants and actively involve artists in the event.
