The Maternal in Creative Work Intergenerational Discussions on Motherhood and Art
Marchevska, E. Marchevska, E. and Walkerdine, V. (ed.) (2019). The Maternal in Creative Work Intergenerational Discussions on Motherhood and Art. London Taylor & Francis (Routledge).
|Editors||Marchevska, E. and Walkerdine, V.|
This edited collection explores various modes and forms of art practice which look at mothers as subjects and as artists of the maternal experience, and how the creative practice is used to accept, negotiate, resist, or challenge traditional conceptions of mothering. The book brings together some of the major projects of maternal art from the last two decades, and opens up new ways of conceptualizing motherhood as a creative and communicative practice. Chapters include intergenerational discussion of art practices in the 20th and 21st Centuries, representations of breastfeeding and infertility in creative projects, the notion of the ‘unfit mother’ and childlessness, together with the experiences of women and men that take on maternal identities through many forms of kinship and social mothering.
This is the accepted version of a chapter from this edited book.
