Social Cooking Romania – NGBK Berlin


NGBK Neue Gesellschaft für Bildende Kunst – Berlin

Social Cooking Romania
15 December 2007 – 27 January 2008

Ion Grigorescu, Farfurie/Teller, Farbfotografie, 1983

Artistic and theoretical works broach the issue of developments in Romanian society by focussing on the subject of „food“. The conjunction of art and food or nutrition offers the possibility of analysing everyday life and the life styles as well as social and political coherences. The focus here lies on the years after the political turnaround in 1989, the fall of the „Iron Curtain“, and the developments connected to it- until January 2007 when the country accessed the EU.

The exhibition “Social Cooking Romania” shows current works of young Romanian artists that are complimented by a selection of artistic positions since the 70s and 80s. Furthermore a documentary section gives insight into past artistic projects and exhibitions on the subject.
