Visible Repair – an ethics of solidarity in a world of hardening identities

Looking back, historical structures of exclusion have compromised solidarity’s prospects by separating and hierarchically dividing identities along the lines of gender, race and coloniality, while emptying out requirements for care and collective responsibility (Khoo 2015). Looking forward, I suggest that an art of ‘visible repair’ underpins a more care-full, critical and reflective ethics of solidarity. Addressing brokenness and visible repair opens up approaches to solidarity which embody an alternative ethics and politics of caring democracy.
