Mothers and Sons

In almost all societies where infanticide is practised, female children are particularly affected. Female infanticide usually occurs in patriarchal cultures where there is a strong preference for men and a devaluation of women.


There is a special relationship between a mother and her son – they say. In many societies, male offspring are considered more valuable than female. In 2015, I processed a postcard from my collection every day – mostly motifs with Mary and Jesus. In the end, there were 365 collages about motherhood and childhood.

This was an annual project suggested by Antje Fischer, realized together with Antje Fischer and Marlies Achermann-Gisinger. All works of this project were presented to the public in the joint exhibition “Point of Opinion” in M√ľnsingen.
