Notes on female* reproductive labor
Performative, collaborative and participatory installation by the participants of the open working group I KNOW I CARE
After a series of inputs and discussions with guest speakers from various cultural fields, backgrounds and socio-political contexts, the open working group will present their different perspectives on (in)visible (un)waged female* reproductive labor. The artistic and visual research is based on the historical site of the Waschsalon (laundromat) within a Viennese public housing complex—an example for the experimental housing innovations of Das Rote Wien (Red Vienna). The reform in communal living transformed the living and working environment, but in which way did it actually emancipate and support the female* labor force to challenge their social role(s)? In this sense, the notion of care will be addressed in relation to Marxist feminist perspectives, leaving space for confrontations, but also for commoning. The still-functioning laundromat will be open to the
public and will serve as a space for exchange with the inhabitants of the current Gemeindebau super-blocks.
Entrance is free and registration in advance is not required!
