Manifesto for Maintenance Art, 1969

Written a year after the birth of her first child, Ukeles' Manifesto calls for a readdressing of the status of maintenance work both in the private, domestic space, and in public. Through this she attempts to break down the barriers between what we think of as 'work' and what can be labeled 'artwork'.
