Funded by the Editorial Board

Cranberryjuice is an action based artist collective aimed at raising awareness about underrepresented subjects connected to care practices and sexual health.

‘By merging artists and researchers with multiple experiences, bodies, struggles and approaches, we strive to create an intersectional platform where the gap between art and activism, the personal and collective and the public and private is blurred.’

Written in the Body

The Jewelry-Linking Bodies departments welcomes you to join them on Monday February 5 for Written in the Body – a day-long program which asks how we can unlearn and reimagine ideas of sickness and health. Written in the Body looks at the seep of medicalized discourse into our ordinary lives, and dissects how naturalizing and normalizing practices shape what we know of bodies and genders. What other ways can we be in and know our bodies?

book in the making ~ send your potions, remedies, diy healing methods
10 Mar

Once upon a time, in a lecture in the fall of 2023, author and researcher Claudia Pallisé talked about how in the middle ages people gathered rec pipes for curing illness, easing trouble of the heart, and preventing sickness. These recipes were handed from hand to hand, home to home. As they circulated they would be improved and modified according to what seemed to work best.
In the 21st century we have an advances, ever evolving practice of science and medicine. Still many of the ancient recipes, remedies and curing hacks continue to circulate in our daily lives.
Incurable conditions by the institutionalised medical sphere such as chronic pain, endometriosis, psychosomatic pain and vulvadynia have made self care practices and DYI treatment a necessity in our contemporary reality as well. New forms of remedies, healing meathods and DIY treatments are being born in people’s deb rooms, toilets, kitchens and shared online or in intimate conversation.
Now we are on a mission to gather it all and archive it into a book. Be it ancient, vintage or new - sci-fi, hippie, tech, dirty, sweet, in testing or known for hundreds of years… We want YOU to send us your family potions, remedies, DIY healing methods and recipes, perfected with time and word of mouth - just like CranberryJuice.
