Home Works – new book edited by Jenny Richards and Jens Strandberg

9 March 2021

"Home Works – A Cooking Book: Recipes for Organising with Art and Domestic Work" is a cooking book that 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 editors are Jenny Richards, doctoral student at the KTD programme at Konstfack, and former Konstfack student Jens Strandberg, who graduated from the Master's programme "Art in the Public Realm" in 2012.

The book has been designed by Johnny Chang and Louise Khadjeh-Nassiri, based on the Home Works graphic profile by Maryam Fanni and Rikard Heberling. All four designers are former Konstfack students.

It includes contributions and special written texts by Samira Ariadad, Jonna Bornemark, Stephan Dillemuth, Marie Ehrenbåge, Silvia Federici, Sandi Hilal, Joanna Lombard, Gunilla Lundahl, Dady De Maximo Mwicira-Mitali, Temi Odumosu, Khasrow Hamid Othman, Halla Þórlaug Óskarsdóttir, Ciara Phillips, Audur Hildur Hakonardottir, Kristina Schultz, Toncirkeln (Shida Shahabi and Anna Sóley Tryggvadóttir) and Nathalie Wuerth.

In the context of a pandemic, where we are isolated and unable to gather around the kitchen table we hope this book can still share tools and inspiration for working together and reflect consequenses of eating and cooking together.

The recipes included in the book were retrieved during the cooking of Home Works; a research and exhibition programme investigating domestic labour and the politics of the home, hosted by Konsthall C 2015-2017.

The book is produced in collaboration with Interim kultur artist cooperative, Konsthall C and published by Onomatopee. It is also part of the publication series Konstfack Artists' Book Collection.

The book is available in the Konstfack library.
