“My Working Will be the Work:” Maintenance Art and Technologies of Change – The New Inquiry
"Recently within the history of science and technology, scholars have focused [Let’s Get Excited About Maintenance!, New York Times, July 22 2017] an increasing amount of attention on the maintenance of technology and systems. Maintenance has been long overlooked in favor of a focus on innovation and design practices; the very beginnings of technology have always been more appealing than their often messy or disappointing longer lives. One important aspect of this “turn” to maintenance histories is that the un-and-underpaid labor of women and marginalized people, who are disproportionately relegated to maintenance work, has again become an important site for articulating the history of technology. A similar turn was initiated by scholars, like historian of technology Ruth Schwartz Cowan and others, in the 1980s. (..)

We might venture to expand the field once more, and place these maintenance artworks in a more explicit story about technology. In her influential book More Work for Mother: The Ironies of Household Technology from the Open Hearth to the Microwave, Ruth Schwartz Cowan takes pains to remind us that the modern industrialized household is intimately dependent on the large technological systems of modernity.

Obsession with innovation over preservation is an obsession with those who are allowed to innovate and an indifference to those who are made to maintain. It’s not just an aesthetic matter of what kind of labor seems more appealing; it’s a power structure that requires the domination of others in order to “maintain the change” created by the innovators."

Jazmati confirmed that a mutual trust has formed between Syrian citizens and Turkey after the latter tried to enhance security in the area, in addition to people’s lack of faith in the existing Syrian administrative authority, including the Syrian Interim Government and the executive authorities, which failed to prove efficiency on the ground.
