The Feast: Prolegomenon - From Peelings to Core
Thursday, October 29, STÄDELSCHULE LICHTHALLE, 17:30
The Städelschule Architecture Class and its second year group, Architecture and Aesthetic Practice, in collaboration with AtelierSlice (Stockholm/New York) and Genießerakademie (Frankfurt) invites to The Feast. The Feast is a year-long experimental investigation into the relations between architecture, art and culinary practice, exploring opportunities for innovation in the making of tomorrow.
The Feast enquires into culinary art and its radical and sometimes innovative transformation of matter for choreographed and carefully sequenced experiences in order to transpose lessons from the experiments into new opportunities for architectural design.
To kick off the experimental programme, SAC and its collaborators invites to The Feast: Prolegomenon - From Peelings to Core, an evening with food and talk about food, architecture and art. Dorothy Hamilton, founder and CEO of the International Culinary Center (ICC), and Sayan Isaksson, founder of and chef at the Michelin-starred restaurant, Esperanto, in Stockholm, are main guests. They join AtelierSlice’s Jan Åman and Savinien Caracostea, Fabian Lange of the Genießerakademie, and Städelschule’s Daniel Birnbaum and Johan Bettum to discuss the history of food and cooking in architecture and the arts, the role of cooking and chefs in the 21st century and how the disciplines engage with innovation and innovations role in forming the future.
For the event, Sayan Isaksson will have prepared soup that will be served; Savinien Caracostea, who has a degree in Pastry Arts from the International Culinary Center in NYC, will serve pastry; and there will be tastes of wine chosen by Fabian Lange.
