m/other becomings is an exhibition in two instalments and part of a larger multiyear collaboration among cultural organisations, artists, and thinkers and connect to a symposium which will take place 9–10 June at Aalto Design Factory.

m/other becomings takes a closer look at the im/possibilities of mothering, not as an essence, but as troubled practice and as a modest, utopian, and oftentimes exhausted precursor of hope. We want to ask what it means – and may come to mean – to make, to mend, to make space for kin despite and against the social reproduction of sameness and compliance, and the (bio)politics of gendered and racialized violence. m/other becomings also explores reproductive futures and asks if life sciences allow transforming and challenging our ideas and possibilities of reproduction and the maternal.

The second instalment of the m/other becomings exhibition includes works from Marta de MenezesPekko Vasantola, and Margherita PevereThe first instalment of the m/other becomings exhibition included works by Riina HannulaLyndsey Walsh, and Rian Ciela Hammond and it was on display at SOLU Space during 5-28 May.
