The Infant – forthcoming art project

Contemporary motherhood, national policy and scientific futurism. An experiment with forms of immersive theatre and live roleplaying.

We seek for your kind support to realise it within 2020!

The project will be aided by the participation of actors, entrepreneurs and enthusiasts impersonating mothers, babies, nurses, doctors etc. Participants will undergo certain processes: A series of tasks and protocols that inform the labor of contemporary motherhood. Players will investigate how ideologies and practices of bettering, fertility and biometric monitoring condition the millennial biopolitics of birth. Additionally, the project will reflect on current social policies in “post-crisis” Greece, as a new rhetoric propagates a state-funded baby-boom to assist the recovery of the “battered middle-class.”

The filmic and material constellation of the project will be presented in 2020.
