Session #7 - Dinner Performance by Samah Hijawi
Take a deep dive in the love and curiosity for food with the artist Samah Hijawi and her on-going project Kitchen.Table. طاولة المطبخ, a research on the movement of food-making practices through trade and migration.
In her performative dinner, she begins with the story of the herbs in the eastern mediterranean herb mixture Za’atar, and the three plants needed to make it: sesame, oregano and sumac. Taking these as a starting point Samah’s performances weave the stories of people, planets and landscapes that can be traced by following the life-line of a plant. Together you will all sit at the dinner table for a meal of ancient and contemporary recipes inspired by these plants, offering a deeper reflection on the politics of the food on the tables.
Given the limited capacity of this food performance, priority will be given to KABK students. If you want to be part of this, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and you will be put on the waiting list and notified when space frees up.
