Present or absent, supportive or domineering, warm or diabolical – everyone has a Mother! Louisiana opens its 2021 season with this large-scale exhibition revolving around Motherhood, viewed through changing notions of art and culture in the 20th and 21st centuries.

In a sprawling and sensuous, richly unfolded story, motherhood and the figure of the mother will be examined in cultural-historical, philosophical, psychological, and artistic depth. In this video curator, Marie Laurberg introduces us to the exhibition. As with Louisiana’s recent THE MOON exhibition, the story will go back in time and follow the tracks that lead to the present moment.

Bringing together works by many of the greatest artists of the period, the exhibition will run the gamut from early avant-garde movements to the present day.

Ranging from religious images of the Madonna to post-feminist “bad girls,” the iconography of motherhood is closely linked to stories of female power and liberation – and to the physical and psychological relationships between mothers and their (artist) children, daughters and sons alike.
