A white liquid sometimes leaking from the breasts of newborns as a result of prolactin being released during birth has traditionally been called Hexenmilch - witches milk – as it calls into question the assumption that lactation must be exclusively connected to motherhood, in turn a natural state women automatically, through the release of prolactin, are sometimes thought to morph into over night after giving birth.
Starting from breastmilk as body fluid in art, the exhibition pinpoints and deconstructs the outer edges of conceptions and myths surrounding breastfeeding, human bodies, creativity and art.
