I just gave a presentation entitled "Beyondthe Good Mother/Bad Mother Dichotomy: Bridging the Reality of the Relationship and Jobs of Motherhood Using Economic Theory" at the Communicating Motherhood conference in Toronto. I'm still working on the ideas but will share when it all shakes out correctly.
Toronto: I'll be at the Pilot tavern (22 Cumberland St) at 6 pm tonight (Monday) and hope to see you there.
Everyone, click through to look at this installation by Monica Bock called "Maternal Exposure (don't forget the lunches)." I laughed so hard when I saw this, and then I felt so tired for all of us. Here's part of the note on the piece: "Inspired by the daily ritual of exposing one's children and one's nurturing skills to public scrutiny, this piece consists of 418 lead sheet bags embossed with school and day camp lunch menus packed for two young children in the course of a year."
Comments and thoughts? If YOU were going to do an installation called "Maternal Exposure," what would you do?
