Mother of all Confessions – Conversation Starter

The Mother of All Confessions is is an open confessional booth for discussions surrounding maternity and parenting.

This interactive work will take the form of a modular “confessional” booth. Participants will engage in dialogues about the conceptions, struggles, and future of artist/mothers. The confessional structure encourages two beings to occupy a shared space; much like the way maternity requires that women share their spaces, both internally and externally. This piece will also address one of the last conceptual taboos in art: maternity.

What’s YOUR story? is the question we are asking artist mothers. Shira Richter and I hope to develop a conversation before and during the Art to Change the World (ACW) event. To prepare we have a selection of questions you can answer. Your input is greatly appreciated and your answers remain anonymous. Come share your story and contribute to an ongoing and developing conversation about maternity and art.
