Leon Filter’s artist book MUMMYTHEDADDY is a collection of personal anecdotes, and written images that explore paternal relationships, inherited memories and experiences with familiar roles. Through stories of military service, dementia, and monsters, the author reflects on the complexities of family histories. By examining how we remember and forget, MUMMYTHEDADDY emphasizes the contributions of narratives in shaping our understanding of how intergenerational dynamics form, and proposes to reshape roles within dependency relationships. With afterwords by Valentina Curandi.
