Semiotics of the Kitchen

In two black-and-white video tapes, Semiotics of the Kitchen and A Budding Gourmet, Martha Rosler mobilized the language and activity of the domestic sphere with dead-pan humor. Seeming to adopt a demeanor of domestic complacency, Rosler demonstrated the politics in the personal and the manner in which our beliefs are deeply if subconsciously affected by our social lives and environments. This memorable and influential work merited a 1991 reprise at The Kitchen at which these videos were once again made available.
