Homemaking and everyday life have been central to political debates and artistic practices in the twentieth century. Home interiors became metaphors for bourgeois identity but were also treated as a battlefield for existential and social problems. The women’s movement changed how home and family life were politicized in society and narrated in art in the 1960’s. Today in our globalized world, the cosmopolitan idea of being at home everywhere is contrasted by an urgent need for a home in a local context.
