Motherhood II / Shifting Realities
Jan 26 – Feb 4, 2024
Berlin, Germany

The exhibition Motherhood II / Shifting Realities is the second in a series of exhibitions about motherhood and being a woman. The aim of the exhibition is to question and deconstruct myths surrounding male and female attributions. The project is organized and curated by IntAkt – International female visual artists ( Internationale Aktionsgemeinschaft bildender Künstlerinnen), Vienna – in collaboration with HilbertRaum and Retramp Gallery. The latter are two project spaces for contemporary art in Berlin Neukölln. The current exhibition is an essential extension of the previous exhibition Motherhood I / Concepts of Motherhood, which was also realized by HilbertRaum member Hannah van Ginkel in close cooperation and with the support of the Motherhood team.

In Motherhood II / Shifting Realities, the focus is on intergenerational and historical themes relating to motherhood. Furthermore, socially highly relevant perspectives such as queer feminist and socio-political positions are shown to direct a more intersectional view of the topic. The exhibition also draws attention to social structures that make it difficult for artists – both mothers and non-mothers – to make a name for themselves on the art market.

Parallel to the exhibition, the Motherhood Team will be showing works by international female artists in public spaces on billboards in cooperation with “Procreate Project”. Procreate Project is a growing archive of international artists who are mothers/parents.

  • Justinien Tribillon: Visible upon Breakdown
    Spector Books

    The space in which we live is determined by currents, by transitions. However, we are so used to moving around in this hypermodern world that we don’t even notice the currents that make up our lives. They are invisible, hidden in plain sight – until they collapse. The war in Ukraine is preventing the export of wheat, Covid-19 and timber shortages are making themselves felt in construction projects all over the world: These events are not just human tragedies, they are also an urgent reminder of global dependencies.

  • A Model
    Feb 9 – Sep 8, 2024

    We all have ideas of what a contemporary art museum should be. Those who founded Mudam Luxembourg, for example, envisioned a museum that would encompass many aspects of contemporary culture, such as art, design and architecture. While one believes the museum to be a place for the presentation of modern art, others view it as a showcase for Luxembourgish creation. And some see Mudam as a space for collectivity, for openness, for events and an experimental approach. (more…)

  • A Real Woman
    Jul 15 – Aug 12, 2024
    The Gallery / Artichoke
    Various Locations, UK

    “When approaching the subject ‘A Real Woman’, I felt it crucial that this was not a question to be answered, but rather a statement to be considered. There is no single or simple definition of a woman. I hope the different perspectives presented by our artists will inspire viewers to consider the plurality of the womanhood, and thereby encourage understanding and empathy towards those whose lives are shaped differently from their own.
