Domestic Terrorism

Tags: | | |

Domestic Terrorism

Domestic Terrorism is a project that makes public the visual evidence of private domestic work and encourages the use of private detail as a means of public resistance.

Laundry hanging on a line can suggest the gender, class and aesthetic principles of the person doing the laundry. It can disclose the population and income of a household. It reveals personal taste and bad habits; betrays acts of insurrection and indiscretion. How laundry is hung can be a statement of pride or an expression of modesty. It can be a form of communication between prisoners, a violation of housing codes in certain communities or perceived as a national threat in times of war.

There are three ways to participate:

1 Commit an Act of Domestic Terrorism. Hang your laundry in public.

2. Create/Add laundry images the images section of this library as evidence of performed tasks that focus on the care and detail of daily life

3. Share stories, texts and information.
