Project “Zu Tisch!” – Dinner is served!
Eating as a journey through time, and place settings made of hair and wool. In the project “Zu Tisch!” students in the Bachelor programme for Art Education at Zurich University of the Arts focus on the culture of eating.
They investigate objects, situations and rituals related to eating, design new place settings and tables or stage alternative forms of eating together. These may facilitate or hinder communication, satirise eating rituals or devise new possibilities for consuming food together. Each project ends with a festive event: the students serve guests a meal and so put their works to the test.
The following four examples show how eating may be enjoyed in new and different ways.
Instructors: Vera Franke (concept and project director), Stefan Wettstein, Marie-Theres Huber, Andreas Hofer, Serge Lunin, Dodó Deér.
