Bitch KitchenBitch Kitchen takes as its starting point an interest in oral history, radical inclusion, tactile involvement, and women's bodies and stories throughout history. For each Bitch Kitchen two collaborating artists select three to four women to inspire the event. The two collaborators research these women through emphatically non-academic avenues including but not limited to gossip, wikipedia, and horoscopes. Offered as a pubic meal with a course dedicated to each woman, a hybrid menu-zine is created by the artists to guide guests through the event. Each diner is imagined an offering, a tactile history, and a celebration.
The menu zines presented and shared during each meal are designed to be flexible to regional and personal edits. The stories within them are written to be retold and re-held by a multitude of mouths, in a variety of venues. With Bitch Kitchen we wish fundamentally to encourage celebrations of marginalized histories, expand the idea of oral histories and resilience and offer community gatherings that create spaces of shared warmth and growth.
If you are interested in collaborating on a Bitch Kitchen event or wish to access our zines to throw an independent Bitch Kitchen, please get in touch.
