Mother Art Tells Her Story
This 40 minute video is a slice of history by Mother Art, a collective of eight women artists. Using art installations in galleries and public spaces, such as laundromats and banks, they explored the social/political issues that affected all of us. Mother Art Tells Her Story focuses on the turbulent times of the 1970's and the 1980's, touching on issues of "women's work," homelessness, reproductive rights, the nuclear arms race during the Reagan years, activism, collaboration and much more. All this is done through the use of personal narrative to make these issues accessible and human.
Artist Paul Harfleet's family had always accepted his sexuality, but it was a different story outside the home. Like many young gay people, he regularly faced abuse. So he developed an artisitic work, the Pansy Project, to challenge homophobia and promote respect and tolerance. We follow Harfleet as he brings his Pansy Project to France for the first time.
