bricolagekitchen emerges from a preoccupation with the art and politics of bricolage, assemblage, junk and trash, developed through research and filtered through a playground of visual and sonic practice. In our nomadic multi-spaced cyber kitchen, we cook - and invite others to cook - with a range of ingredients, preparing text, sound, images and objects in multi-sensory contexts. What we cook, we place in the world in a collaborative feast of the makeshift.

gillian whiteley is a curator, writer and improviser (voice/accordions/keyboards/violin and objects) working across creative-critical boundaries in various collaborations with other artists, writers and improvisers. Based in Sheffield and on a narrowboat on the Trent and Mersey Canal, she teaches at the School of the Arts, Loughborough University.

gillian whiteley’s research focuses on trans-disciplinary practices and cultural production within socio-political contexts, from cultural activism, artists' collectives and various forms of radical, countercultural practice and theory from the 1960s through to contemporary practice. It engages with emergent anti-capitalist ideas and the possibilities for revisiting communitarian, anarchist and post-Marxist autonomous thinking.
