What it's all about

Motherhood is a boundary-breaking experience: physically and emotionally. Invisible care work, thinking and feeling in exchange for little social recognition. What stories do women* experience with regard to experience with regard to motherhood and the associated projections?

That's why you have to come 

MUTTERSEIN brings together the polyphonic experiences of women* and gives space to their stories and diverse realities. The result is a collection of things and stories that takes the everyday seriously. The exhibition is opened by a choir that observes and comments on motherhood in our society and itself becomes a collection of attributions, observations and experiences - sometimes tenderly, sometimes wickedly and with necessary humour.


 Eva-Maria Baumeister works as a director, author and curator at the interface of (music) theatre, radio play and performance and is the mother of two children. Sibylle Dudek is a dramaturge, author and mother. After working in Vienna and Berlin, she has been a dramaturge at Schauspiel Köln since 2013.

A co-operation of Sommerblut Kulturfestival, Rautenstrauch-Joest Museum, ON- NEUE MUSIK KÖLN, Frauenkulturbüro NRW & FWT.
