The project is inspired by the feminist slogan “The Personal is Political” popularized in the late 60s through an article by Carol Hanisch.
The Everyone That We Know News Network is a video performance executed as a collaboration with artist Chris Barr.
It is a home news broadcast featuring daily reports and updates on the life of family, friends, neighbors and colleagues.
Bringing into the public realm concerns deemed personal (body issues, housework, sex, childcare), feminists managed to raise consciousness about gender inequality and discrimination, eventually leading to a change in economic and political justice. Likewise, we humorously expose the lives and concerns of our loved ones in an attempt to share personal experience and influence a public sense of responsibility on such issues as immigration, health care, marriage or just about the trials and joys of everyday life.
