In her studio, which is also her living room, Frances Stark wonders if she has not become a housewife. She observes with amusement and weariness the male artists she associates with the figure of the Architects because they separate artistic production and domestic activity, art and decoration, and because they are lucky enough to be able to leave the domestic space to create elsewhere. Frances Stark reflects on her daily experience, mixing it with reflections on houses built by R.M. Schindler and Jorge Pardo, Oscar Wilde’s essay Criticism as an artist, Virginia Woolf’s A Room of One’s Own, as well as statements by Daniel Buren, Adolf Loos, Otto Weininger, and Ludwig Wittgenstein. She thus delivers her thoughts, lively and sagacious, on exhibition spaces, houses, bedrooms, decorative cushions, also taking into account the couples of men and women who use them, meet there, unite there and separate there.
