Block Print - "To Repair Is To Rebel"

10.00

“To Repair is To Rebel” — one of the prints that emerged from the Felt Here workshop. My collaborator Roopali Phadke introduced us all to the “right to repair movement” — a global effort to advocate for the right to repair electronics, rather than simply replacing them or being beholden to the manufacturer for expensive updates. As we were considering this movement alongside conversations about care vs. extraction, some of the people in the workshop space started to see how, in a capitalist system that puts high social and monetary value on the extraction and consumption of materials, other types of repair work (from mending textiles to repairing and healing relationships or health) constitute an act of rebellion. We saw an image from a “right to repair” protest with these words, so I decided to cut them into a simple block so I could gift these as patches back to the community. Your purchase of a print supports this ongoing project!
