Abstract

In The Hologram: Feminist, Peer-to-Peer Health for a Post-Pandemic Future, Cassie Thornton explores the impact of COVID-19, neoliberalism and austerity politics on the US healthcare system, presenting ‘The Hologram’ as an alternative model of care based on solidarity, cooperation and interdependence. While unconvinced that the model is likely to be adopted on a global scale, Alanna Wurm found this a fascinating insight into one artist’s response to healthcare inequality that may become a much-needed network of solidarity for those excluded from their healthcare system. The Hologram: Feminist, Peer-to-Peer Health for a Post-Pandemic Future. Cassie Thornton. Pluto Press. 2020.
