This letter from writer, artist, and musician Johanna Hedva, available as a PDF and audio, was presented during the public event Care and Complaint which was part of the I CONSENT–summer school Rehearsing Hospitalities 2023 programme in collaboration with UKS.

Care and Complaint brought together artists, activists and curators to consider the relationship between care, complaint and access, and how institutions might better attend to these as a commitment to a more inclusive arts ecology. Hedva’s letter, specifically commissioned for this occasion, opened the event and situated the panel discussion with Yvonne Billimore, Nora Sulejmani, Vishnu Vardhani, Miriam Wistreich.
