When Martha Rosler recorded her work Semiotics of the Kitchen, there were no mobile phones. With her usual critical and feminist gaze, Rosler wanted to make a parody of a well-known cookery show on American commercial television from the mid-1970s. With irony and humour, Rosler videotaped herself showing, one by one, everyday kitchen utensils with gestures that expose the instrumentalisation of women. What would be your particular culinary alphabet today? With a mobile phone, it shouldn't be too difficult to experiment as Rosler did.
