Carolin Zieringer
Caring for Contradiction

14.03, 07:00 pm

As part of Jala Wahid’s exhibition I Love Ancient Baby, we cordially invite you to an impulse-lecture and talk with Carolin Zieringer on questions relating to the practices and ambivalences of contradiction. 

It is almost a commonplace that we live in contradictory times. But what does it mean to take social contradictions seriously? Which contradictions must be endured – and which not – in a democracy? Is every form of contradiction already emancipatory, and if not, where do we draw the line? How does contradiction become a collective, democratic practice that is not limited to a “yes, but…”?

Carolin Zieringer investigates these and similar questions from a radical-democratic and queer-feminist perspective. Taking Jala Wahid’s play with ambiguities and emotions as a starting point, Carolin Zieringer sets out to discuss how we can remain open to contradictions and uncertainties in a world permeated by exclusion and violence, what role care plays in this, and when it is structurally impossible to care.

Carolin Zieringer is a political theorist and Doctoral Fellow at the “Contradiction Studies” Research Training Group at the University of Bremen. “Caring for Contradiction” is the title of her doctoral project, which is dedicated to the complex relationship between practices of contradiction and care ethics, work and policies.

She studied Political and Cultural Studies (Bremen, Salamanca, London) and Political Theory (Frankfurt). In her academic work, she links questions around corporeality and relationality, subjectivity and gender, democracy and care. In 2021, together with the nOu collective at Künstlerhaus Mousonturm in Frankfurt, she organized Nocturnal Unrest. A Feminist Festival for Theory, Performance and Radical Flâneuserie.
