HOME CINEMA on films about domestic labor  
GDR apartment, Bemuurde Weerd oz 18b  
With Phil Collins, Michèle Faguet and Tamar Guimarães 

HOME CINEMA is one GDR’s regular activities where the screening of films that touch upon different aspects of domesticity, neighborhood organization, urban planning and alternative politics take place. On the occasion of GDR GOES ON, films that deal with domestic labor issues in the context of a global chain of labor economy are screened in the intimate and informal environment of the GDR apartment. With screenings of Soy Mi Madre (2008) by Berlin-based artist Phil Collins and Canoas (2010) by Copenhagen-based artist Tamar Guimarães in conversation with curator Michèle Faguet, we hope to explore the aesthetic and structural affects of architecture, popular culture and the ways in which they influence our imaginings and realities of the experience of domestic service work. Can such aesthetic investigations offer ways to rethink the potential agency of actors within these realms? Domestic workers and labor union organizers in the Netherlands are invited to join the post-screening discussion to bring to light local experiences and issues.
