In this article Katarzyna Kosmala looks at the works of women artists' in the exhibition Exporting Zagreb at the National Museum of Gdansk in 2016. The concept of "nomadic motherhood" is at the centre of the exploration of the works and the focus is on how women artist's works highlight the position of being "in-between" different nation-states as well as "inter"/ "mezzo" forms of nomadic subjectivity (from Rosi Braidotti), including concepts of "precarity" in relation to women artist's labour and lives. Works by Croatian artists Ines Matijevic Cakic, Martina Grlic, Gordana Bakic, and Polish artist, Hannah Nowicka are discussed. The author advances the argument that while motherhood in its nomadic form is barely perceptible as a "feminist praxis without a name or a border", it should not be ignored in conceptions of contemporary art and politics.
