Mageirocophobia at MoMA

A client recently gifted me an admission ticket to the Museum of Modern Art. Six floors worth of dodging hordes of tourists had exhausted me, but I found myself imbued with the curiosity of a nubile once I discovered the Counter Space: Design and the Modern Kitchen exhibit. For those of us who love all things domestic, dreamy, and efficient, this exhibit featuring the idealistic post-WWI German public housing projects kitchen is worth the 20-minute long wait at bag check. Those who reject all this should not only call upon my services (ha ha!) but should also see the exhibit for its nod to feminist artists who rejected the isolation of women to the kitchen and the kind of society such isolation fostered. I learned a new word: Mageirocophobia, which means fear of the kitchen.
