DOMESTIC PRODUCTS / PRODUSE DOMESTICE
[2014]

The performance is based on a 3 year investigation of the entire domestic labour placing system in Romania. In a country well-known for its export of domestic labour, hiring exotic in-house helpers is becoming a status symbol. Although Domestic Products is based on the experience of migrant women, it tells the story of domestic work, both paid and unpaid. Domestic Products speaks about the real price of household and reproductive labour and instigates against its sexualisation.

The piece toured various European cities and festivals and was nominated for best project of social inclusion in 2015 by the Ministry of Culture in Romania.
