KUNST KEBAB: Exploring Food And Art In Social Space

02-16 December 2017

Kunst Kebab, an international art exhibition, which focuses on the relationship between 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.

Visiting Hours: 16:00-19:00 (Mo-Sa), Closed on Sunday

Address: Museumsquartier U2 U Bahn Station Passage 1010 WIEN
