Feminist SF: Visions of M/otherhood & Reproduction

 The accompanying TALK SHOW programme to the exhibition project The Camille Diaries

 Curated and hosted by Isabel de Sena

This 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.
