(M)other voices

Saturday July 13th, 11.30 am: Picnic event to launch "(M)other voices", Hareskoven:
Donoghue (artist, Rotterdam), Oda Projesi (artist's collaborative, Istanbul), Witte de With Centre for Contemporary Art (Rotterdam) and Astrid Noack's Atelier (Copenhagen) invite you for a summer's picnic to launch the long term research project (M)other voices: the maternal as an attitude, maternal thinking and the production of time and knowledge.

During the picnic we will discuss the notions of 'maternity' and 'motherhood' as possible
attitudes towards being-in-the-world, and the relations between hospitality, maternity and the figure of the Other. Each participant should bring something for themselves to eat and drink
and possibly a blanket to sit on.

Location: The ancient site of the contested groove stones
associated with fertility worship in 'the woods of the stones' at Lilla
Hareskov, Denmark. Meeting Place: Hareskov Train Station, 11:30 AM

Directions: From city centre Copenhagen, take the S-train A in
the direction of Farum. (Travel time from Copenhagen city centre to
the Hareskov train station approx. +/-10 min.) From Hareskov train
station we will walk together to the location. (approx. 1.7 km).

To reserve a place please email:  Places are limited.
Once you have reserved a place, you will be sent a short version of the reader. Besides this small reading, you are invited to present an image or an object, through which you have in someway
reflected on the proposed notion of ‘the maternal as an attitude’, or which in someway defines your notion of ‘mother’.
