Bakudapan Food Study Group is an Indonesia-based collective which uses food as an “instrument to speak about broader issues,” such as politics, social- and gender-related matters, economics and labor, philosophy, art, and culture. In this training, Bakudapan Food Study Group focuses on domestic work, bringing to attention the fact that Indonesia is one of the biggest “exporters” of migrant workers to domestic contexts, where they work as cooks, caretakers, babysitters, cleaners, and housekeepers.
Bakudapan Food Study Group wants to explore the power relations between migrant domestic workers and their employers. They test whether and how the site of the training they have chosen – the kitchen – may help, if only temporarily, to suspend these extant hierarchies of power, trusting that those who use the kitchen most might be able to acquire a certain position within it. This, along with the associations such as caring, affection, and obligation, may help with narrating the domestic work of migrant people from multiple perspectives, and not merely from the customary standpoint of power. The training questions and examines the power constellations within the kitchen. Bakudapan will conduct workshops within this training with a different set of topics; kitchen mapping, kitchen tools, recipes, cooking, and eating together. By exploring through each workshop, we will be able to hear stories, tactics, negotiations, that are created inside the space.
