Housewarming Dinner at Konsthall C

In Konsthall C’s kitchen, together with curator Kim McAleese, Underverk invited commercial ‘chef’ and a domestic ‘cook’ to respond to the questions posed in the Mierle Laderman Ukeles’ Manifesto for Maintenance Art.

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 Josefin Günther and Magdalena Günther were 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.

The dinner was part of the public program of the Ukeles exhibition at Konsthall C, the idea being that members of the public are invited to engage in some of her thoughts and artistic concepts over a meal in the space.

30 guests joined the dinner and together we discussed our thoughts about maintenance work with the following four courses:

First Course
The Perfect Façade
A selection of vegetarian and vegan canapés

Main Course
The Sacrifice…Blood, Sweat and Ears
Polish beetroot soup and Uszka

Dessert
The Disposal
To be enjoyed with your hands

After Dessert
The Notion
One for everyone to take away

Josefin Günther is a sommelier currently working as a freelance writer. Food, beverages, scents and flavours have always been a very big and natural part of her life and she is always looking to add new scents and flavours to her palate. Finding new ways of expressing what we experience when we eat and drink is an ongoing home-project of hers.

Originally from Poland, Magdalena Günther came to Stockholm via Copenhagen where she attended a College of Arts. Her entire professional career as a graphic designer/art director has been spent trying to juggle work, family and social interactions. Her passion lies in exploring gastronomy and culture from other countries, and she has always cooked.

T37

Since Oscar moved in to his apartment on Timmermansgatan 37 in Stockholm, he found himself constantly documenting the space and its contents. It was not until the autumn of 2012 he realised that his documentations were not just photographs of random stuff he had at home, but were instead a medium to understand himself, his surroundings and his relationship to his home better. When he realised this, he decided to move out of his apartment for six months to distance himself from that home in order to discover what that environment meant to him. In the exhibition T37 you could find his search for that meaning.

Oscar Poulsen, born 1981 in Stockholm, has a bachelors degree in media and communications from Stockholm’s University. He was a co-founder of the platform for young photographers called Vidvinkel Foto. Today only the Vidvinkel Magazine he produces remains. Oscar works as a professional photographer and teaches photography at Berghs School of Communication.
