"Mothers*, Warriors, and Poets" is an artistic-activist platform founded by Stuttgart-based artists Anna Gohmert, Renate Liebel and Marie Lienhard to question and renegotiate the relationship between artistic production and motherhood*. The platform's name is inspired by Black feminist Audre Lorde's self-description, "black, lesbian, mother, warrior, poet." For Lorde, describing herself in several terms at once was central, as it revealed the complexity of her identity as well as her struggles as a Black feminist, artist, and mother* - to be a mother* artist is to be a warrior, and to think radically and evocatively like a poet at the same time. For this edition of "Mothers*, Warriors, and Poets", the three initiators of the platform invited the artists Anna Schiefer and Julia Wirsching, as well as Didem Yazıcı and Sascia Bailer as curators - all of whom are caregivers. 

*We use the term mother with an* to open it up to all people with caring responsibilities, who identify with the term.
