What is family and marriage? Besides the emotional and cultural aspects of them, they are also a set of governance instruments. Authorised by religions and governments, they are the social frameworks that presuppose the way we organize our lives and relationships with others. In the face of the gig economy and the aged society, everyone is facing burnout crisis and scarcity of connection. Is the nuclear-family-oriented marriage institution sustainable? Can we imagine a more suitable social infrastructure for our contemporary lives? Can new technologies such as Blockchain play a role in it? Based on the idea of alternatives, artists Yin Aiwen and Jelena Viskovic are developing project ReUnion together.

Following the success of their soft launch at Waag Society, Het Nieuwe Instituut will host a Rotterdam edition where the artists will talk about their project. After the introduction, they will invite everyone to join the thought experiment about what is possible outside of the marriage institution, and practice the future of care with fellow participants with ReUnion’s proof of concept.

Yin Aiwen (designer, NL/CN) and Jelena Viskovic (game artist, HU/DE) met as fellow researchers at The New Normal program of Strelka Institute in 2017. Their common interests in the future of care labor and alternative social arrangements brought them together and started collaborating on ReUnion. Special thanks to Ritesnetwork (Tamás Marquetant and Tamas Páll) for developing the digital proof of concept and Stimuleringsfonds Creatieve Industrie for the financial support.
