In the online edition of MoMA’s ArtSpeaks program, a member of our staff shares personal impressions of an artwork in the galleries. Here, Andrew Gardner, curatorial assistant in the Department of Architecture and Design, visits his spices in Grete Schütte-Lihotzky’s Frankfurt Kitchen from the Ginnheim-Höhenblick Housing Estate, Frankfurt am Main, Germany (1926–27), the earliest work in MoMA’s collection by a female architect.

Explore our collection work by work as we release a new video each Friday. Watch the videos and then come visit the works in person at MoMA!
