We all have different opinions about art and food. When they clash, the conversation starts. By combining art, food, technology and people we encourage ourselves and others to discover the world. We are EAT ART collective, an open collective driven by multidisciplinary craftsmen fascinated by all things food.
EAT ART collective is an openhearted
collective of makers with a specific interest in food. We find food to
be an artistic material like copper, clay or pain. Yet it offers so much
more in terms of the perception by people. What is Good? What is
Normal? What is Health? What beholds the Future? We challenge and
investigate these concepts in various forms, from performance and
installation to buffets and interactive movie nights. We offer projects,
workshops and caterings on demand as well as self-initiated ones.
Our food philosophy differs from project to project. We always search for sustainability and good taste. This can be locally produced, dumpster dived, vegan, home grown, low energy, stolen from the rich and given to the poor, made up out of thin air or anything else.
We work as a small collective with open borders , so we welcome enthusiastic and open-minded researchers, cooks and artists from various backgrounds. Some of the Kompanen have been with us over the years, while others join on project base. We are glad to be surrounded by local growers, scientists, permaculture gardeners, artists, designers, theater makers and even a few chefs. Feel free to contact us for specific requests or collaborations, internships and participation.
