B*tches & Babies is a multi-part workshop series that began at the end of November 2019 during the exhibition The Making of Husbands: Christina Ramberg in Dialogue to address issues of motherhood, care work and new parenthood and to channel these into creative spaces for action.
After six dates plus a longer interruption during the lockdown and the resulting increased care work crisis, we would like to conclude the workshop series B*tches & Babies with the previous participants and all interested people who feel a connection to the topics and to the persons involved.
In a spontaneous sandbox catwalk, we invite everyone to present the T-shirt prints that were created during the workshops in analog and digital form with the participants. The T-shirts are a first visible tool to articulate questions of care work, one’s own–maybe even new–role in parenthood, solidarity in care and protest against the neo-conservative distribution of roles, which has partly become stronger. In this spirit: Let’s meet on the catwalk!
The project is aimed at all persons who have children, wish to have children, are excluded or discriminated against because of their desire to have children.
