Manifesto for Maternal Performance (Art) 2016! is written in collaboration with Lena Simic. It has been presented at ‘Bringing Up the Future’ exhibition and conference at SC Gallery in Zagreb, ‘Oxytocin Festival’ at the Royal College of Art in London, ‘The Mothernists II: Who Cares for the 21st Century?’ at the Astrid Noack’s Atelier in Copenhagen and the Live Art Development Agency, London.
The Manifesto pays tribute to Mierle Laderman Ukeles’ Manifesto for Maintenance Art 1969!. It follows Ukeles’ two-part structure: ‘Idea’ and ‘The Maintenance Art Exhibition: “Care”’ become ‘Ideas’ and ‘Maternal Performance Journal’. The Manifesto embraces the messiness and daily action of the maternal and strives to nurture an understanding of daily maternal practice.
