The Grand Domestic Revolution Handbook is a compendium of living research developed by artist, designers, theorists, neighbours, and activists who investigate and expand the status of the home outside the narrow lens of private concerns. Inhabiting the structure of a 1960s home economics design manual, the handbook offers numerous entries that include case studies, project documentation, ephemera, analysis, and theory in the form of artistic, collective and spatial design operations. Five key categories are implemented in this book: Domestic Apparatus, Inhabitation, Work at Home, Economy to Oikos, and Neighboring (Organizing).
Grand Domestic Revolution Handbook brings together relations and tools forged between the private and public spheres, and across multiple fields.
