Presentation Tuesday May 6th, 7 PM,

Peter Puklus, The Hero Mother

On the occasion of the workshop Corpo e oggetto, given by Peter Puklus at door on May 7th and 8th, we have the plasure to host the presentation of his last book in Leporello. In The Hero Mother, Puklus deconstructs and questions the dynamics of the pre-established female and male roles: motherhood as an alleged heroic activity and the supposed duty of the father to build and protect the home. His search breaks down the traditional symbols associated with maternal and paternal figures in a playful yet critical way. Outside the confines of the photographic studio, he develops an original visual vocabulary around parental life and issues related to the construction of the family nucleus.
