Enemies Of Good Art

We invited Lisa Baraitser MA Course Leader Psychosocial Studies at Birkbeck, and editor of MaMSIE to host our final show of the season. MaMSIE (Mapping Maternal Subjectivities, Identities and Ethics) is an international network of scholars, artists and activists working in the emerging interdisciplinary field of maternal studies.

The discussion addresses issues of labour, social class, capital, care and the maternal.

Lisa Baraitser is joined by Stella Sandford, Mirca Madianou, Imogen Tyler and Gail Lewis to discuss the privatisation of maternal labour, and the diverse ways ‘maternal care’ has been, and continues to be delegated and shared. Our discussion will range from Marxist Feminism through to the creative ways that mothers in the global south are continuing to parent their children while providing maternal labour for mothers in the global north.
