Ausstellung: Kunst Kebab: Exploring Food & Art In Social Space
Opening: 02.12.2017 // 19:00 – 23:00
Kunst Kebab, an international art exhibition, which focuses on the relation of food and art will take place in a Kebab Restaurant in the U2 Underground Passage in the Museum Quartier, Vienna. The restaurant, which is run by a Turkish immigrant, will be a site for artistic interventions and it will include artworks of different media such as digital printing, photography, installation, painting, video and performance. The exhibition will host 13 artists from different backgrounds and it will be curated by Deniz Beşer and Deniz Güvensoy.
Artists: Žarko Aleksić, Fatih Aydoğdu, ONA B., Boris Beja, Deniz Beşer, Elisa Jule Braun, Deniz Güvensoy, Jelena Micić, Khaled Ramadan, Kamen Stoyanov, Katharina Swoboda, Serra Tansel, Joshua James Zielinski
The main focus of the project is to discover the role of food, eating and tasting in contemporary art. Another important focus is to investigate the ways to transform the meaning and function of social spaces using art practices. Turning a Kebab restaurant into an art venue is both a challenge and a new opportunity to create new encounters in a new context.
