*UNITED MOTHERNIST ARTISTS MANIFEST ILLUMINISMS*

*

At the intersection of feminism, science fiction and disco “Mothernism” aims to locate the mother-shaped hole in contemporary art and discourse, therefore:

 

*

MOTHERNISM IS NOT SOLELY AN ETHICAL OR POLITICAL,
BUT ALSO AN AESTHETIC POSITION

 

*

MOTHERNISM AIMS TO MAKE MOTHERS AND MOTHERING VISIBLE, AUDIBLE AND PALPABLE, OUTSIDE BUT PARTICULARLY INSIDE OF THE VISUAL ARTS

 

*

MOTHERNISM AIMS TO EXAMINE AND CHALLENGE THE PERCEIVED SCHISM BETWEEN THE MATERNAL AND THE ARTISTIC

 

*

MOTHERNISTS STRIVE FOR THE HIGHEST DEGREE OF EXCELLENCY, BEARING IN MIND THE PARAMETERS OF ‘QUALITY’ ARE NOT UNIVERSAL, BUT LOCAL

 

*

MOTHERNISM IS CO-LABORING WITH THE FORCES

 

*

MOTHERNISM IS AN ORGY OF ORGANISATION

 

*

MOTHERNISM IS RE-STUDIO, RE-MODERN,

RE-CONSTRUCTIVIST

 

*

MOTHERNISTS PLAY IN THE EXPANDED FIELD BETWEEEN

CRITICALITY AND GENEROSITY

 

*

MOTHERNISM BEGINS TO BREATH WHILE BEING DRAWN OUT

 

*

ALL MOTHERS BEING EQUAL, NOT ALL MOTHERS ARE ALIKE,

NOR ARE ALL MOTHERNISTS ALIKE

 

*

MOTHERNISTS GET THEIR DAILY FOOD GROUPS COVERED:

EYE CANDY, SOUL FOOD, UMAMI
