In the context of the residency Mothers in Arts, the project of the artist Aurora Rosales consists partly of a series of lunch-lectures where she invites women from different backgrounds and disciplines to talk about the contemporary challenges womanhood faces.

During the talks a vegan lunch will be shared with the idea to reinforce the sense of community, promote the exchange of knowledge and the strengthening of networks and solidarity.

In a subsequent phase Aurora will make a video from the lectures and works related to them. The pieces will be displayed in the final exhibition of the residency.

This event is baby / children / partners friendly. There will be a playground and a quiet room with a changing table next to the space; partners are invited to take care of the children.

Mothers in Arts is a small initiative founded by Csilla Klenyanszki. Mothers in Arts supports women artists who are also mothers and shines a light on the mother-shaped blindspot within the art world.

It puts forward a discussion about a problem that affects many young artist women when they become parents. Even though many artists have children, parenthood – specially motherhood – remains stigmatized in the art world. Therefore, besides the physical and mental challenges of childbearing an added feeling of isolation can be felt by many mothers.

We believe that women have to remain part of the art community after they’ve become mothers. Mothers in Arts is a platform for artists and through an artists in residency we want to stimulate young women artists with children.

Being a mother is not a stigma; motherhood can accompany a successful artistic practice.

Mothers in Arts is free of charge; the artists agree on take turns to work and look after each others children around an organized work schedule.
