The installation consist of archive photographs from the Woman´s Building in Los Angeles, sculpture and a video from 1974; ”First day at the Woman´s Building” borrowed from The Getty Research Center, Los Angeles.  About the video: The video show a group of wimmin sitting on the floor and talking about why they have come to join the Woman´s Building. Consciousness raising was an important pedagogical strategy used at the Woman´s Building, sitting in a circle each women was given her own time to speak on a given topic such as money, power, work, sexuality, without interruption the others listened to her. Women revealed deeply private experiences and often discovered that other women had similar experiences. A realization that the personal is political.
