HOSTING the M/OTHER VOICES: Field Trip #12
date: 5 July, 2016 _ _ _ _ _ _ _ time: 7pm _ _ _ _ _ _ place: klupkorooms / amsterdam
The m/other voices are a base for critical reflection on how the two different modes of labor – that of mothering and that of participating in the art world – co-exist in ones daily life and the strategies implied within. The Field Trips are informal gatherings based on mutual exchange and engagement, through which a common vocabulary and a collective understanding of contemporary sociopolitical issues related to art- and maternal labor can be built upon. One of the tasks for the Field Trip participants has been to reflect on their art practice from an axis between their mothering labor and their art production labor. The presentations can take form in various ways and up to now they have included performance, sculptural installation, re-enactments, presentation of archives, talks and more. http://www.mothervoices.org
