Analyzing some well-chosen works of art in its diverse presentations, from conceptual to performative art – among others – this episode offers an excellent, eye-opening gender reading and astute feminist interpretations of representative women’s art,  centered on women’s perennial experiences of caregiving, everpresent universal maintenance, housework, motherhood – all within the “ aggressive pressure of incessant capitalist development, extraction, competition, innovation, and expansion…”

The episode is read by the author, Ivana Bago.
