“Ce me ne vidiš, še ne pomeni da ne delam.” (Although you don’t see me, it doesn’t mean I don’t work.) 

– Ask! action slogan by Revolt Social Workers, Ljubljana 

The third edition of Casco’s traveling exhibition project The Grand Domestic Revolution GOES ON takes place in Ljubljana, Slovenia, in the context of the City of Women Festival 2013. Since 1995, the festival has been presenting the artistic and cultural production of women in the performing arts, music, visual arts, film and video, literature and theory, thereby aiming to provoke a debate and raise awareness about the participation and representation of women in arts and culture, as well as in society as a whole.  

For its third iteration, GDR GOES ON explores questions around domestic labor, organization, solidarity and composition with a particular focus on the body. A two-fold exhibition, taking place at a local bookshop and in a temporarily vacant storefront in the city centre, presents projects that were generated through GDR as well as key feminist works such as Mierle Laderman Ukeles’ Manifesto for Maintenance Art, 1969! and Euro Portrait (series, 1977-2006) by Esther Ferrer. 

Forging and fostering local alliances as it “goes on,” GDR works with local communities and groups in Ljubljana such as Revolt Social Workers, Social Centre ROG and Squat Exercise Collective.
