Mothering and Politics in Art

The online lecture From Elite Reversal Agents to Red Lighting Bolts: Mothering and Politics in Art by Zuzana Štefková sets to explore the terrain at the intersection of art, situated mothering, and activism. Based on examples of contemporary art dealing with various aspects of mothering and the refusal of reproduction, the presentation examines artistic critical responses to politics, institutions, symbolic resistance to oppressive systems, and the potential of activist maternal art.

Zuzana Štefková, Ph.D., is an assistant professor at the Charles University and teaches courses at the Academy of Art, Architecture, and Design. She works as a freelance curator and art critic. She is also a member of activist group Mothers Artlovers and co-founder of c2c circle of curators and critics.
