MOTHERS IN ARTS

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.
