The multidisciplinary Art collective explores the relationship between food and conflict through art.
The gastroperformance “Soviet Roulette” by Simone Mattar and Omar Castaneda will take place, questioning the audience what is safe to eat in Chernobyl and what is not in current times of food manipulation.
Opera singer Carolina Gomez will perform “Lluvia Negra”, her new song about the radioactive black rain which contaminated the Belarussian town of Gomel three decades ago. She will also sing the collective’s Manifest and songs inspired by food.
Marco Alessi and Naviar Records will play traditional music from the area of Chernobyl mixed with new sounds inspired by nuclear catastrophes.
Tenere Arte will also be performing on the night.
The artists will conduct a guided tour of their current exhibition that will be an opportunity for the audience to approach first hand the concepts of ‘The Food of War’ Manifesto and the vision of the art collective.
Food of War includes Omar Castaneda, Quintina Valero, Carolina Muñoz, Hernan Barros, Simone Mattar, Martin Hajduch and Zinaida Lihacheva.
