To Mind Is To Care is an interdisciplinary study of care, defined as everything we do to maintain and restore our world so that we can live in it to the best of our ability. This world encompasses our bodies, our selves and our environment, which we all try to weave into a complex and sustainable web (Bernice Fisher and Joan Tronto). The exhibition centres on Ellen Dissanayake’s argument that things we do not take care of lose our attention and are therefore get forgotten. According to Dissanayake, art plays a necessary role in directing our attention towards things that are important or should be considered important. Artists do this by "taking care of" these things through their motivation, planning, dedication, strength, persistence, skills and patience.

The exhibition focuses on this caring-for by inviting artists to realize their contributions over the exhibition period and make the public a part of their processes of caring for the works. The show focuses on taking care of people, other life forms and technology. The actions performed by the artists in their processes continuously lead to visible differences in the works over time. The results of these actions offer insight into what caring-for in the practice of artists means and how they use it to investigate care themselves. They provide insights into the preconditions for taking care of something or someone, but they also, for example, reflect on how we care for our technology and how it, in turn, can provide for people. In contrast to other exhibitions, To Mind Is To Care will only be “finished” at the finissage, when all the artworks are completed with care.
