Women House

Monnaie de Paris

20 Oct 201728 Jan 2018

“Women House” brings together 40 female artists of the 20th and 21st centuries to discuss a gender – female – and a space – the domestic one. The point of departure of the show is Virginia Woolf’s “A Room of One’s Own” in which she encouraged women to find a room that they could “lock up without disturbance” and work in, inside the long time prison or shelter that is the house. The exhibition’s eight chapters display the complexity of the possible viewpoints on the subject: not only are they feminist (Desperate Housewives); they’re also poetic (A Room of One’s Own), political (Mobile Homes) or nostalgic (Doll’s House).
