‘Love in a Mist. The Politics of Fertility’ Womxn in Design – Gallery Talk

Poster with image of flower and text

The exhibition Love in a Mist: The Politics of Fertility explores society’s quest to control women and nature, and the resulting environmental degradation. It brings together issues such as the historical use of synthetic hormones in women’s bodies; measures to super-size farmed animals and domesticate plants; and techniques to accelerate fertility and extract natural resources.

This gallery talk and tour is initiated by Womxn in Design, who will join the curator Malkit Shoshan to discuss the questions raised by the exhibit and the urgency of the topic.

The event at the gallery will be followed by the screening of the Diana Whitten’s documentary film “Vessel” in Stubbins. The film follows Women on Waves, a Dutch pro-choice organization founded by Dutch physician Rebecca Gomperts in 1999, follows Gomperts as she sails a ship around the world and provides abortions at sea for women who have no legal alternative.

Light snacks and drinks will be available.

The event is hosted by Womxn in Design, and Art, Design, and the Public Domain (ADPD) MDes.
