On Thursday, June 7, at the Geffen Contemporary, MOCA, Mierle Laderman Useless discussed her work in conjunction with Wack! Art and the Feminist Revolution, the first institutional exhibition to examine Art made under feminism. After child-birth in 1968, Ukeles became a mother/maintenance worker and fell out of the picture of the avant-garde. In a rage, she wrote the Manifesto for Maintenance Art 1969, applied equally to the home, all kinds of service work, the urban environment, and the sustenance of the earth itself. She viewed the Manifesto as world vision and a call for revolution for the workers of survival who could, if organised, reshape the world.

This is about sustainability and cleaning.

In 2005 I worked in 7 differents hotel at Snæfelsness and make a documentary about it. In 2014 I came back, trying to find an answer to my questions.

This is a neverending performance. Im wondering : how the volcano challenge my actions?
