'Who Cares For The 21st Century?' 

12-15 October 2017,  Copenhagen.



'The Mothernists II: Who Cares for the 21st Century?' is the second iteration of The Mothernists, a transatlantic summit & art exhibition held in The Netherlands in June 2015, which brought together the work and thought of practicing international artists and art historians for the cross pollination of art, philosophy, and maternal theory, practice, and experience. It is the brainchild of Lise Haller Baggesen (Mothernism) and Deirdre M. Donoghue (m/other voices) and it combines their two long running projects concerning artistic and academic research into maternal (aesth)ethics. The symposium is co-organized and co-hosted by Astrid Noacks Ateliers and the The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts and was made possible through generous support from the Danish Arts Foundation, Copenhagen, and Centrum Beeldende Kunsten Rotterdam.
