Maternal Fantasies, New Alphabet School #4 Caring
Live Stream Debut
From Maternal Fantasies:
Who cares for whom and what are the consequences? The feminist art collective Maternal Fantasies lets viewers peak into their homes, where artistic production exists alongside domestic tasks and childcare. Household items become toys. Kitchens become backdrops. Care work and parenting have historically been marked by gender-based inequalities, yet the current conditions of social distancing have acutely magnified these injustices. Against this backdrop, the performance seeks to understand “mothering” not as a physical and fixed category or identity, but instead as dedicated time, attention, nurturance, protection and an interrupted state of mind."
As the pandemic transformed the way in which we operated as mothers and artists, we created this online performance from within our homes to demonstrate that care work is more essential than ever.
