Oblique (Susana Pedrosa & Patrícia Pinheiro de Sousa (DAI, 2011)) presents: 5 ½ PROPOSALS TO WORK AND LIVE IN THE CURRENT MILLENNIUM~ PROPOSAL #5 THE ARCHITECT AND THE HOUSEWIFE with a contribution, among many others, by Lara Morais (DAI, 2012)

| tag: Rotterdam

In this proposal we want to understand the difference between private and public labour, domestic and 'employed' labour. We will reflect on the the value of 'caring labour' and how this form of labour is often invisible.

Together with local neighbourhood associations and cultural institutions this two day event will consist of a shared meal, film screening, music and a collaborative community event, taking place in the neighbourhoods of Oude Noord and Agniesebuurt.

Take part and contribute in various Oblique ways!
