The accompanying TALK SHOW programme to the exhibition project The Camille Diaries
Curated and hosted by Isabel de Sena
3-part event series pays tribute to the powerful alternative images
of mothering we've inherited through the pioneering work of feminist
Sci-Fi writers, most notably regarding their defiance of conventions
on (technological) reproduction, child-rearing, the maternal body,
and sexuality, as well as their invention of ecofeminism and myriad
forms of transspecies kinship.
Rather than a nostalgic reflection, the events examine these authors' sustained relevance within the current sociocultural and political landscape, inviting experts from divergent fields (visual arts, gender-studies, literature, biotechnology and political science) to programme their "ideal TV and reading evening" on the topic.
Through a live Talk Show format, the selected footage and live readings are interspersed with conversation, so that the audience (re)discovers the works through the guest's eyes.
