"Cultural ReProducers are an evolving group of active cultural workers who are also parents. This site is for anyone interested in making the art world a more inclusive and interesting place by supporting arts professionals raising kids."
"Referring to Judy Chicago [in Institutional Time, A Critique on Studio Art Education, Monacelli Press, 2014]: ... it is understood that if your end game is a place in art history, recreation and procreation are necessary sacrifices, and to become 'one of the boys' one must become 'one of the boys'. Furthermore she maintains that as a woman you need to realise that you cannot 'have it all'.
(As ever, the euphemism 'it all' refers specifically to that sad cow double whopper of childbearing and career greedy bitch in heat that you are!)"
... Somehow, coming from a woman and fellow feminist, this female on female misogyny hits below the belt. Not in the solar plexus of your ambition, but in the root chakra of your desire. Because, at its root, the impulse to mother is simply that: desire. A lust for life. A romantic sturm und drang, and then some. Not ambition, nor destiny, but as Kristeva calls it: a passion. Like art making is a passion. A desire as carnal as labor. As kinky as lactation and as disturbing as disfiguration. As mysterious as sharing your most intimate secrets with a perfect stranger. A desire as simple as Courbet's "Origin of the World" as natural as obsessive as Bonnard's family idylls.
