7 Women Images presents documentation from an action in Copenhagen that saw women taking washing up taking into the streets.

Using collage, the film builds up a sharp portrayal of the contrast between the media’s depiction of women in society and the realities of life at home.

Film and events programme
Beginning with a survey of Mierle Laderman Ukeles and her significant examination of Maintenance Art Work between 1969–1980 the exhibitions and events programme delve into expanded artistic examinations of the home, domestic (maintenance) work and the gendered division of labour; asking how these radical practices can prove relevant today. The accompanying film programme will be shown at Marabouparken konsthall and offers weekly reflections on feminist struggles battled in the everyday. Two showreels of artists film and video work punctuate the programme which include a number of work from the Cinenova collection, dedicated to distributing films and videos made by women.
