ALL BODIES is an artist publication by Róisín Power Hackett produced as an outcome for her ARC LAB Curatorial Scholarship. She began to investigate disability as part of her curatorial practice during her time living in a tent in the French Alps in 2017. The publication examines the root of why she began to research disability and develop ideas around it. It reflects her experience of disability through a personal essay that incorporates disability theory and philosophy, poetry, and a series of drawings. Through the essay Róisín suggests that unravelling capitalism is the only solution to begin ending ablism. ALL BODIES in the context of the Dublin Art Book Fair could be framed as a manual for what is ablism, and how can we end it.
