In Konsthall C’s kitchen, curators Kim McAleese and Josefin Vargö have invited a commercial ‘chef’ and a domestic ‘cook’ to respond to the questions posed in the Mierle Laderman Ukeles’ Manifesto for Maintenance Art 1969!
Produced in 1969, the manifesto connected to other feminist activities around the world which began to articulate the gendered inequities between paid and unpaid labour. The chefs Aaron Colman and Josefin Günther are invited to make a dinner, using the food as their material to convey what they believe to be ‘maintenance work’ as an attempt to readdress the issues raised in Ukeles manifesto.
Invited guests will be asked the same questions to encourage a discussion about gendered division of labour and how that looks today.
The event is free but has limited capacity – you can register your attendance, before 6th of April, at email@example.com
With support from Stockholm stad and Konstfack/CuratorLab.
