MOTHERLAND [2019]


MOTHERLAND is a collaborative publication written by four female students talking about distance in context to the motherland or a “home”: approaching it as a person, a physical place, or an object that carries meaning to them. “the Motherland” is the origin they all derive from. The publication explores distance from literal and metaphorical angles.

A collaboration with Andrea Galano Toro, Merle Findhammer and Nai-Syuan Ye.“We are the daughters of our mothers, our homes, our stories. All these things make us, wheter these are the places where we grew up, the food we were raised with, the smell that reminds us of Sunday mornings of the songs we memorized. What is the motherland to you? How far away are you from it? And how can you go back to it?”
