Simone Wouters’ film and installation ‘Assisted Incapability’ demonstrate how in today’s society, where people organise their own networks, those with psychosocial problems can easily become stuck. For many with a social disability, the stress of fending for themselves is overwhelming. All the elements within the white frame of Wouters’ installation demonstrate aspects of their individual handicaps, from an inability to organise their time to budgeting problems. The idea is that if we can understand the issues our system causes for these people, we can help remedy them by showing more flexibility.
