Pandemic Parenting Interview with Batnadiv Hakarmi, by Rachael Grad
I was teaching before the pandemic in 3 different places. During the pandemic, it was a real struggle to teach on zoom with kids at home. I didn’t go back to teaching until after lockdown was over because it was too difficult to get childcare. I used to teach art at Brandeis University in the summer and I really miss it. I found there isn’t that much flexibility in teaching so between lockdowns and quarantines, I transitioned to giving workshops and doing freelance editing. The work does take away from my art practice – it’s a constant juggle to make time and space. From the online exhibit: Pandemic Parenting, organized by Rachael Grad for the Museum of Motherhood.
