   schema:description "Today, after more than one hundred years of dispute, the domestic is being re-evaluated and returned to a position of cultural prominence, impelling us to look back over the mainstream of modernism in an effort to trace its hidden domestic subcurrents. This book, with stimulating and highly original contributions by leading historians of art and design, represents the most coherent and considered investigation of domesticity in visual culture. Through these essays, the notion of home is freed from stereotypes of sentimental nostalgia and emerges as a vital arena of modern art - and of modern life."@en ;
