Cleaning Conditions July 2013

ManchesterActivists from the 3 Cosas Campaign and Justice 4 Cleaners took part in Manchester in a performance devised by US artist Suzanne Lacy in homage to Allan Kaprow’s 1995 instruction:

Sweeping the dust from the floor of a room
Spreading the dust in another room, so it won’t be noticed
Continuing daily…

Lacy, whose work centres on social themes and urban issues, invited groups of volunteers to sweep the gallery’s floors, raising awareness of domestic and immigrant labour, the minimum wage and feminism.
