Join us for a private view of Home Strike, co-curated by Middlesex University's Dr Alexandra Kokoli

Home Strike, guest curated by Dr Alexandra Kokoli and Basia Sliwinska, brings together the work of four female artists — CANAN, Paula Chambers, Malgorzata Markiewicz, Su Richardson — in an exhibition exploring contemporary resistance to the persistent feminisation of domesticity and household maintenance. The exhibition interrogates those biopolitical and cultural norms that see women, and their bodies, systematically domesticated, exploited and imprisoned by patriarchal ideologies.

Oscillating between the horrific and humorous images, Home Strike revisits the domestic biopolitics of 1970s feminism. Through its contemporary inflection, the exhibition considers the impact of 1970s feminism has had on intersectional discussions of class, gender and race.

The exhibition runs until 19 April.
