LA BONNE - FROM THE SERVICE GIRL TO GLOBAL SERVICE
Household work is still considered to be female. The „Kleinigkeit Haushalt“ („bagatelle household") calls for division of labour, but between whom? As in the past, work is less divided between the sexes, and women now delegate a large part of their daily housework to women from other, mostly poorer countries. “Cleaning, cooking, caring" - for these tasks a new chain of women has been formed around the globe.
Equipped with its own hanging technique, the exhibition is easy to set up; culture-comparative about domestic helpers in Germany, Europe, West Africa, India and worldwide, with interviews and many objects, with historical as well as current photos of the “bagatelle" household.
