January 19 – March 4 2007
Opening: Thursday, 18. January 2007, 19 h
The exhibition "normal love / precarious sex. precarious work" has been conceived on the basis of photography and texts by the 'maid of all work' Hannah Cullwick, which she created in London during the second half of the 19th century.
Starting out from her historical self-staging of a sexuality that spans all classes and genders, the participating artists are invited to investigate the relations between sexuality and work. In the process, the exhibition asks whether Hannah Cullwick’s desires and methods of self-portrayal have perhaps become universal today, as a paradoxical and by no means voluntary requirement in the field of work.
