Home Works – A Cooking Book: Recipes for Organising with Art and Domestic Work (2021) expands on cooking with art and food as a process for coming together and building collectivity. The book highlights the art and politics of eating together through a number of artistic, curatorial and tasty dinner recipes. Recipes that nourish and nurture conversations around domestic labour, collaborative practices and feminist politics, expanded upon through a series of essays and interviews.
The recipes were learnt during the cooking of Home Works; a research and exhibition programme investigating domestic labour and the politics of the home, hosted by the art space Konsthall C in Stockholm 2015-2017.
Home Works – A Cooking Book is a tool for everyone that wants to use art to challenge what work we value and how work is organised.
Without further ado...let’s cook!

Womens Day Off – Domestic Labour, Collectivity, Feminism & Migration (2017) (with Jenny Richards) is publication that summarise a collaborative network across the Nordic Region initiated in 2015 between The Living Art Museum, Iceland (Nýló), Centre for Art and Migration Politics, Denmark (CAMP) and Konsthall C, Sweden. The network developed from the symposium Women’s Day Off which was held at Konsthall C and invited each organisation to present their projects and research connected to women’s struggle and collective mobilisation. The book brings together three like-minded organisations to open up a discussion around how we can collectivise today for a more equal society, from both a gender, class and race perspective.
