LINK: Het Resort - En de openbare ruimte dan?

"Fountains for large corporate buildings (Belastingdienst, Gasunie, Menzis), retreating from duty to a passive state. The decorative function and the passiveness of a fountain however touches upon anothersocial idea. The idea that female labour is literally worth lessthan male labour, rendering female labour less useful andmore of a decoration. The fountain as a wasteful, passiveand a decorative force parallels the corporate perception offemale labour even today."
