M(Other)hood: A Collective Lecture

M(Other)hood - unfolds in a non-linear mode of production. It transforms and blends as a generative container when it encounters the public. It takes on different appearances, it appears as a research presentation WITH Motherhood(s) under ADAM 2021 and as something in between exhibition, performance, and public talk M(Other)hood: Camping under Think Bar, Taipei Arts Festival 2022. This time, as a Lecture/Performance in ADAM Kitchen. Taking the site of Motherhood to move research into direct engagement with the world, ongoing research through the practice of Mothering, Mother as the potential of perpetual becoming rather than a qualitative identity. How Mothering is used as a queering processor for Intra-Otherhood.
