13:30-15:00La Fonderie

Today, laundry is an activity that seems trivial to us. In this exhibition, we show you that it is actually omnipresent in our daily lives and eminently representative of the technical, cultural, social and economic evolutions of our society. The exhibition approaches the subject of laundry through broad and varied thematic registers: sociology, the history of techniques and chemistry, industry and trade, hygiene, the female condition, water distribution, household management, the environment, mentalities and practices, the history of laundry in Brussels, literature or even painting. Discover laundry through its many dimensions and question your relationship to its issues. You will never see a washing machine in the same way again after your visit to the exhibition "Derrière le hublot. La lessive d’hier à demain".
