a collective and political representation of domestic space open for constant improvement and study. browse & contribute!
core to bourgeois life and ideology, the dichotomous public-private separation runs through spatial, cultural and social categories alike. public square versus living room, political versus personal, action versus inaction, visibility versus invisibility, presence versus withdrawal, male versus female. if any instance of collapsing or breaching these distinctions presents a challenge to the ordinary, normalized course of events, what does it mean to photograph the domestic sphere and put these images into circulation on the internet, which supposedly epitomizes publicity? what happens if, in this way, we collectivize the domestic work we do in our isolated, singular homes? do we turn the categories of the public and the private inside out, or does the distinction persist?
