A casa das mulheres

Women Houseé o encontro de duas noções : o género  – o feminino -  e um espaço – o doméstico. A arquitectura e o espaço público eram masculinos, enquanto o espaço privado foi durante muito tempo a prisão, ou o refúgio das mulheres: esta evidência histórica não é uma fatalidade e a exposição Women House mostra-nos isso
«Elle rassemble sur 1000 m2 et dans une partie des cours de la Monnaie de Paris, 39 artistes femmes du XXe et XXIe siècle qui se saisissent de ce sujet complexe et mettent la femme au centre d'une histoire dont elle était absente». 
Após a etapa parisiense, Women Houses irá para o National Museum of Women in the Arts, em Washington D.C a partir do 8 de Março.
