In her work Made With Love the author tackles the concept of family from the perspective of the contemporary precarious working conditions. In this case, of artistic activity, which eliminate the difference between work and privacy, whereby the equalization is not related to political declarativity but rather a necessity to survive.
Under precarious working conditions, the production and reproduction blend and the production “is dispersed” through the entire sphere of life. This opens the questions of social and economic evaluation of “products” in the family sphere when this is included in work. Hence what is the social and private role of a parent, an artist and a precarious worker?
Both parenthood and artistic engagement often share the same status in society- they are supposed to be an activity/necessity/ responsibility made out of love. The author confronts the ideology behind care-work and art-work, and points at the problems of unpaid, invisible labor. Disrupting the idea of both being means of happiness and fulfilment, Made with love confronts us with uneasiness and proposes to open a discussion about a culture of commons.

Nell’opera Made With Love l’autrice affronta il problema del concetto di famiglia, dalla prospettiva dei lavoratori precari contemporanei. Nel caso specifico, la condizione di artista, abbatte le divisioni tra sfera pubblica e privata, sebbene questo livellamento non sia frutto di un’azione politica dichiarata, ma piuttosto dalla necessità di sopravvivere.
Lavorare in condizioni di precarietà significa mescolare la produzione e la riproduzione, e la produzione si “disperde” in ogni ambito della vita.
Questo apre la problematica sociale e economica di valutare il “prodotto lavorativo” quando tutta la sfera familiare è inclusa in esso. Dunque, qual è il ruolo sociale e privato di un genitore, di un artista e di un lavoratore precario? Entrambe le condizioni di artista e genitore sono considerate come equivalenti all’interno della società, originate entrambe da attività/necessità/responsabilità che derivano direttamente dall’amore. L’autrice analizza l’ideologia che risiede dietro al senso del lavoro di cura e del lavoro artistico, e solleva il tema del lavoro non retribuito, invisibile. Distruggendo l’idea preconcetta che entrambi i lavori siano mezzi per conquistare felicità e appagamento, Made With Love ci lascia al confronto con le difficoltà, aprendo una discussione sulla cultura dei luoghi comuni.
