Mother(-Countries) – Mother(-Tongues)
In the workshop, the artist invites participants to search for traces – in the crevi ces and sounds of mother tongue(s), diaspora and migration, in text, word and song. Remembered and imagined sounds, words, images and smells of mothers – their bodies, languages and voices – serve as material. The potential of multi lingual voices of mothers will be explored through whispering, singing, crying, clapping and laughing – and by creating a collective sound collage.
Thursday, July 13, 4–7 pm
Saturday, July 15, 10 am – 1 pm
Workshop for mothers and carers, Ger./ Eng., on-site childcare – please register.
