Abstract "Der Artikel verfolgt den Anspruch einen Beitrag zur Theoretisierung der Care-Arbeit im patriarchalen Kapitalismus zu leisten. Auf einer abstrakten Ebene wird versucht die permanente Abwertung der Care-Arbeit durch eine Verknüpfung marxistisch-feministischer und psychoanalytischer Perspektiven analytisch fassbar zu machen. Zunächst wird dabei das Wert-Abspaltungstheorem von Roswitha Scholz im Kontext marxistisch-feministischer Debatten, skizziert und kritisiert und in zweifacher Weise (formanalytisch und psychoanalytisch) re-konzeptualisiert Im Ergebnis wird dabei die Marx'sche Wertform als Wert-Abjektionsform konzipiert, die als soziale Form die strukturierende und konstituierende Kraft der Care-Arbeit darstellt und so deren permanente Abwertung erklärt." (Autorenreferat)

"This paper aims to deliver a contribution to theorise care-work in patriarchal capitalism. On an abstract level of argumentation and linking marxist-feminist and psychoanalytical perspectives, it explains the permanent devaluation of care-work. In this respect it describes and criticises the theorem of 'value-dissociation' by Roswitha Scholz in the context of marxist-feminist debates and re-conceptualises the concept in a twofold manner (formanalytically and psychoanalytically). In conclusion the marxist value-form always appears as a value-abjection-form, which as social form is a constitutive and structuring force of care work in patriarchal capitalism and explains their permanent devaluation. The article discusses current analyses and assessments of the contemporary 'multiple crisis' from the perspectives of feminist and neo-Gramscian International Political Economy (IPE). We argue for a conceptual linkage of these approaches in order to analyze the role of gendered subjectivation in currently dominant forms of crisis management. The Troika's policies in Greece are presented as an example for how the - implicitly organized - redistribution of responsibilities for socially necessary care- and reproduction work can be understood as 'subjectivation as crisis management': the displacement of crisis management into the gendered subjects themselves."
