The idea of the home as a recreational sphere outside political, economical and societal structures was already firmly repudiated with the 70s feminist slogan ”The private is political”. But has private space today become so mediated by advanced technology, new working conditions and family patterns that it is simply futile to speak of the home as a private sphere?
The Smart Home is a group exhibition in Copenhagen presenting works by contemporary Danish artists working in themes such as data sharing, public/private life, intimacy and digital identity in a present where the barriers between the physical and the digital have gradually disintegrated. The exhibition will be under video surveillance during opening hours, with the live images will be uploaded to the website www.thesmarthome.house.
As part of The Smart Home, an extract of Auto Italia’s video work On Coping is being presented alongside A New Product by Harun Farocki (2012), with screenings taking place on the 23rd and 25th November.
