Washing the Nappies: Working in the Post-War Suburban Kitchen

Studio Pavilion presents a series of talks to coincide with the exhibition 'Stoop, Stoop, Stooping is Stoopid!' including Washing the Nappies: Working in the Post-War Suburban Kitchen on August 27th!

Washing the Nappies: Working in the Post-War Suburban Kitchen

About Washing the Nappies: Working in the Post-War Suburban Kitchen

We’re excited to announce a series of talks that have been programmed alongside Rachel Adams & Tessa Lynch’s collaborative exhibition “Stoop, Stoop, Stooping is Stoopid!” on display in the Studio Pavilion at House for an Art Lover. This series delivered by a variety of academics, writers, artists and historians aims to expand upon some of the artists’ research interests as well as provide an insight into a variety of subjects touched upon by the exhibition.

The interwar suburban home offered new ways of living for tenement dwelling Scots. As well as rooms designed solely for sleeping, the new labour-saving kitchenette was a modern workspace based on ideas of gender, science, design and class. After the Second World War, as women’s roles changed alongside the increasing domestic consumption, the kitchenette became a site of modernisation and frustration as it began to creak at the seams to accommodate the trappings of modern housework. This illustrated talk will explore the history of the kitchen and the experiences of working in the home in post-war suburban Glasgow.

Dr Yvonne McFadden is a social and cultural historian whose research focuses on housing design and how people use space to meet their needs as individuals but also as a couple, family or household. She is particularly interested in how women’s work, paid and unpaid, impacts upon social mobility and affluence in the second half of the twentieth century.

Refreshments will be served at the event.

This event is FREE, however booking is essential.
