In the organizer's words:
In 2022, the right to decide when and how to become a mother is still a controversial one. In many places, there is a fight for legal abortion, while in some places the law is to be reversed. The discourse polarizes around birth rates that are too high or too low, artificial insemination, legalization of surrogacy, adoption by single people and homosexual couples. Motherhood is political. Written from the narratives of immigrant mothers, trans fathers, heterosexual mothers who resort to artificial insemination, gay fathers with children, women who have had abortions, women who do not want to have children, Mother Tongue is an encyclopedia of reproduction in the twenty-first century. In a hybrid space between library and cabinet of curiosities, where documents, films and music are exchanged, the performers* reconstruct the past and discuss the future.
