MILF = “Mother/Mom/Mum I’d Like to Fuck”
What is a mother beyond biology, gender role and patriarchy. Beyond moralism, body politics and attachment theories?
In a new solo MILF, Nadja Hjorton will work on maternal physicality, and the stereotypes, utopias and paradoxes embodied by motherhood. How can one deal with maternity without falling into biological traps, without consolidating or confirming stereotypes and binary stories?
Nadja is interested in the bloody, sloppy, bodily and animalistic aspect of motherhood. The becoming, the actual labour of delivery, the cutting, pushing, breathing, pain and pain relief. But she is also interested in care taking and how family life and parenting, to a large extent, organizes and sustains societal structures. How much society actually is carried by a certain type of motherhood and what different ”maternal practices” proposes in different contexts.
