Mother of the Year
Between Empowerment and Crisis. Images of Motherhood from 1900 to Today


€26.36 (excl. VAT)

The catalogue showcases not only shifts in the stereotypes of motherhood from 1900 to today but also the changes in the perspective from which children see their mothers. It calls into question the optimization logic of today’s life designs and nurtures the hope of change: an ever greater number of women with children opt out of the complex, often stressful regime of everyday life, refusing to accept their lifeworld between career, children, and consumption as preordained.
