On the occasion of her solo exhibition at the MARTa Museum in Herford, Germany, Lena Henke has produced a catalogue designed together with Studio Sandra Doeller and published by Spector Books. Sharing its title with a new site-specific installation conceived specifically for the museum that reinterprets the “Kitchen for the Man”, a 2007 design collaboration between the German kitchen manufacturer Poggenpohl and Porsche Design. The publication charts the research behind Henke’s new installation, engaging with themes of nostalgia, domesticity and the production of power-relations in urban space. With texts by Kathleen Rahn and Hiji Nam.
The publication is available in 800 copies and can be purchased via the museum and Spector Books.
