This work is dedicated towards a live-site research about a house called “Haldi”, in relation to paracurating and the classifications of this term. In reference to the curatorial associations of paracurating, Haldi is an extensive work in relation to a house of womxn, by exploring the associations of how co-living within this particular space, and the transformative processes that have been created and are yet to be realized. This work draws on a speculative fabulation, an influence of Donna Haraway’s writings “Staying with the Trouble”, where Haldi’s activities and rituals that have taken place will be translated in a fictional and story-telling writing where insights of feminist practices, collective thinking, co-living and care taking play a role of empowerment and situated knowledge is shared amongst the living space of Haldi. Haldi or formally named as Haldenstrasse is situated on top of die Halde in the neighbourhood of Kreis 4 in Zurich.
