Notes for the Waiting Room was commissioned by Canaries member Taraneh Fazeli for her curatorial project Sick Time, Sleepy Time, Crip Time: Against Capitalism’s Temporal Bullying. The work is comprised of three interlinked parts: newspaper, installation, and distribution network. Canaries members were invited to contribute texts and images addressing the question: “How do you take care of yourself during a flare-up of your symptoms?” The resulting publication, distributed in art contexts as well as in doctor’s waiting rooms, challenges the unilateral and hierarchical transmission of information from doctor to patient by centering communal, experience-based knowledge sharing instead.
