more info:
At the intersection of feminism, science fiction, and disco, MOTHERNISM aims to locate the mother-shaped hole in contemporary art discourse. If the proverbial Mother is perhaps perceived as a persona non grata in the art world, because her nurturing nature is at odds with the hyperbolic ideal of the singular artistic genius, MOTHERNISM amplifies her presence, channeling her energy, complexity, and sublime creative potential in a series of intimate and critical reflections. The resulting collection of letters—dedicated with love from one mother to her dear daughter, sister, mother, and reader—fuse biography, music, art, and history into an auto-theoretical testimony that recalls and redefines the future imperfect.

Invisible Spaces of Parenthood Manual
The ISP Manual is part of Invisible spaces of parenthood: A collection of pragmatic propositions for a better future, a Communal Knowledge project by Andrea Francke that explores issues surrounding childcare in collaboration with local nurseries, childminders, children’s centres and parent groups, and looks for new models and possibilities. This included setting up an exhibition and a workshop space at The Showroom, summer 2012, for visitors to test out DIY designs for furniture and forms of play, some of which were gathered through an open call. 

The manual contains eight especially commissioned essays as well as interviews, event excerpts, discussions and documentation from the exhibition .
