Long before the global pandemic ever broke out, artists were making artworks at home and addressing their domestic surroundings. In doing so, they have been continually discovering and inventing new meanings of this home as a purportedly universal notion. Apartments become studios and museums. Kitchens and sleeping areas become politically loaded terrain, spaces for action, and places to subvert the semiotics of everyday life, mostly through humor. Ahmet Öğüt s new documentary film-essay explores this history with examples from Anri Sala, Nina Yuen, Ulay, Lala Rascic, Harun Farocki, Martha Rosler, Constant Dullaart, Cengiz Tekin, Jonas Lund, Agnieszka Polska, Jakup Ferri, Flo Kasearu, Kuang-Yu Tsui, Nevin Aladag, Rebecca Horn, Bulent Sangar, Hiwa K, Hussein Chalayan, Aernout Mik, Ana Husman, Ziad Antar, Alban Muja and special contribution from Baris Dogrusoz.
