Critical Cooking Show

Through the act of cooking, kitchens establish implicit, visceral understandings of the world. No recipe is neutral; no tool universal. Since the advent of social media, and particularly since lockdown, people around the world have opened their personal kitchens to the unknown viewer. As an intimate, geosocial, critical space, kitchens are places for stories to be told; for new kinships to be made, and new alliances to be forged.
