Semiotics of the Kitchen

Postcard_Rosler_martha_Semiotics-and-Budding_1975_forweb

 

In two black-and-white videotapes, 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.
