The m/other voices foundation rose from the research project (m)other voices: the maternal as an attitude, maternal thinking and the production of time and knowledge led by Deirdre M. Donoghue (artist, writer, researcher) at Witte de With Centre for Contemporary Art, between June 2013 and June 2014. The project's purpose was to initiate discourse and the doing of maternal theory within arts and other fields of cultural production and to reflect on the maternal figure as a thinker and a producer of knowledge. By considering the maternal as an attitude towards our being in the world, and as a practice held together by an ethos of ultimate hospitality towards 'the other', the m/other voices foundation explores relations between maternal work and -experience, -thinking and -time and the production of knowledge within arts and beyond. The foundation connects and brings together scholars, writers, artists, curators, historians from various corners of the world and its work takes place through specifically framed human encounters, exchanges and contributions between people from various disciplines and backgrounds. The foundation's work will be carried out under the three categories of 'Art, Research and Theory', 'Dialogue' and 'Community Involvement'.
