Featured alongside the Frankfurt Kitchen is a 1968 mobile fold-out unit manufactured by the Italian company Snaidero. These two complete kitchens are complemented by a wide variety of design objects, architectural plans, posters, archival photographs, and selected artworks, all drawn from MoMA’s collection. Prominence is given to the contribution of women throughout the exhibition, not only as the primary consumers and users of the domestic kitchen, but also as reformers, architects, designers, and as artists who have critically addressed kitchen culture and myths.
Frankfurt Kitchen Floorplan
The MoMa has an amazing interactive site for their exhibition. It is a perfect resource there are a ton of pictures for the tl;dr crowd, background information about the Frankfurt Kitchen and Margarete. I got lost in this site reading, viewing the pictures and listening to a tribute song by Robert Rotifer about the Frankfurt Kitchen.
I'm going to be singing this all day today - SPECIALLY during my trig test when I need to concentrate because my mind just loves to wander and be frenenemy.
This exhibition is organized by Juliet Kinchin, Curator, and Aidan O’Connor, Curatorial Assistant, Department of Architecture and Design.
Counter Space is supported by Silestone Quartz Surfaces.
