I recently attended Oxytocin Birthing The World, a conference at the Royal College of Art in London put on by Procreate Project (June 2017). It was a great chance to hear so many artists, mothers, performers, academics, midwives, activists and curators who are making visible the hidden life of care. I was inspired by how thoughtful, imaginative, and insightful all the presenters were. There was a real sense that mothering itself was beginning to be studied in the same way that gender studies has become an important thread of academic enquiry. It's an exciting time to work on issues of representation in the world of home and care.
