FiBL project

Title Cooking and eating as an aesthetic practice. An explorative study
Title Original Kochen und Essen als ästhetische Praxis. Eine explorative Studie
FiBL project number 35125
Abstract

Cooking has become an important cultural field since the 21st century. Apart from the significant role of food production in natural sciences,cooking also focusses on cuisine, design, art, gastronomy and a sustainable understanding of agriculture.

This boom of food and eating contradicts the “crisis of eating” stated by Kimmich and Schahadat in 2012 and the increasing divergence of dietary needs and reality (Rudolph and Bassett 2014).

Core aspects of eating and cooking are defined in this artistic project by use of a discourse analysis as well as a survey of cooks and their guests. Based on the results, artistic models for alternative food practices will be developed.
