Human relations are radical points of resistance, says Eszter Salamon. In empathy with female subjectivities several of her works focus on feminist genealogies and transgenerational relations. “M/OTHERS” reconsiders the structures of generations by exploring the mother-and-daughter relation. It offers an occasion to move away from social norms and inspire our imagination to open new modalities of action, feeling and perception. This is the second time Salamon asks her mother to perform with her. “M/OTHERS” is envisaged to be developed further by transmitting it to various mother-daughter couples.
