COOKING UP STORIES – COOKING WITHOUT BORDERS

Can Denzer / Elena Doncev / Julia Habarda / Elizabeth Sharp

27.9.–6.10.2019

Marginalization and distrust of foreign cultures, refugees, and migrants can currently be sensed on many levels. The consequence: a split in our society. Against this background, the project COOK­ING UP STORIES is intended to eliminate prejudices, increase the amount of direct dialogue, and overcome social barriers. At a mobile booth, Austrian cuisine will be prepared along with specialties from other cultures, directing the focus at common narratives. Festival visitors will also share personal experiences with other cultures – an exchange that will result in a variety of accounts across the globe being collected, thereby visualizing existing positive multicultural connections that reflect respect. With participative inter­ventions that change every day throughout the Focus District of Alsergrund.

Initiated at the studio Design Investigations (Industrial Design 2) at the University of Applied Arts Vienna.
