Illés Sarkantyu : “The figure of the Alzheimer’s caregiver”, Maison des Sciences de l’Homme Ange Guépin, Nantes


On the occasion of the conference “Pluridisciplinary approaches to the figure of the carer” at the Maison des Sciences de l’Homme Ange Guépin in Nantes, Illés Sarkantyu presents an exhibition of photographs taken on the figure of the carer of Alzheimer’s patients.

In a context of demographic and health evolution and of reflections between national solidarity and family solidarity to face the consequences of this evolution, the management of dependence has raised the issue of care in the legal, media and scientific space. A new field of research has emerged over the last ten years or so which places the carer at the centre of a very broad scope, in which issues relating to the collective and personal dimensions of support meet, often with political and social implications in relation to a recognition which is still under construction.
