What do food waste and our economy have in common? And what to do with leftover crops as a result of an unexpected good harvest? The affluent cabbage harvest last season was too much for farmers to process for a fair price, resulting in an economical devaluation of crops to prices of nearly zero. This dinner is a way to embrace the challenge.
In collaboration with Stichting Mediamatic we will look at food waste in a radically new way, during a five-course feast centred around our hero ingredient: cabbage.
During this performative dinner artist Arne Hendriks will take you on an immersive food journey. Together with chef Thorwald Voss (Mediamatic), Arne will create a setting that stimulates all the senses and challenges the way we look at food. This abundance sets the stage to talk about the way we handle food, our economic system and the value of consumption in our society. After this experience, you'll never look at cabbage in the same way again!
Part of the dinner is the Eindhoven book launch of Baltan's latest publication: Economia: Methods for Reclaiming Economy, which is derived from the successful Economia festival in April 2017.
The Economia Abundance Dinner is a vegan dinner, celebrating the abundance of plant-based ingredients. The dinner consists of a wide variety of dishes that appear on the table in five different courses. For more information and tickets please visit www.baltanlaboratories.org.
