The mother is the archetype of the ultimate care giver, but who cares for the mother? Mothering is often romanticized, made holy untouchable and then vilified when people fall short of the endless normative expectations written in stone. Who doesn’t have a complicated relationship with Mom or being a Mom? Here at the Future Clinic we think the world needs fierce mother protectors more than ever.
For the fourth edition of FCCC Zurich, a sexy and diverse group of battlefield nurses invite you over to our home. Its fictional, but the delicious vegan dinner we have made and the issues bring to the table are real. We are serving some hot politically charged queer, crip and nomadic forms of home-making that will make your heels and wheels click.

This edition of FCCC is celebrating an expansive/alternative response to the pink washed mainstream LGBTQ* pride parade in Zurich. We have been focusing on building super diverse coalitions of care representing Mad, Disability, Refugee and LGBTQ* Pride. We don't want mainstream inclusion, we want a revolution.
This Future Clinic for Critical Care, Inhabitants of the Mathilde Escher home in Zurich meet representatives of We Are Here Zurich as well as other activists and artists in order to negotiate emancipatory forms of care with the public and the often violent, patronizing and normalizing narratives. For this they use bright, humorous and radical means of art, social work and activism.
This workshop is geared towards the intersection of disability studies, queer/crip theory, performance, social practice, crip pop culture, radical social movements, socio cultural animation and politics.
