Exhibition at the Weissenhofwerkstatt in the Mies van der Rohe House
September 12 to November 8, 2020
Ann-Kathrin Müller + Julia Schäfer

What Shall We Eat This Time? is an interdisciplinary, artistic research project that will be presented in the Weissenhofwerkstatt at the Weissenhof Estate in Stuttgart. Two cookbooks, Koch schnell und frisch für den Sommertisch (Fast and Fresh Summer Recipes, 1931) und How to Cook in Palestine (1936), were the starting point for this project. Both books were written by Erna Meyer, who in 1927 participated in the Werkbund exhibition The Dwelling in Stuttgart as the home-economics consultant and, due to the fact that she was Jewish, emigrated to Palestine in 1933. The political upheaval in two countries is revealed in the recipes. The formation and transformation of cultural identities through the process of cooking and eating is investigated and challenged in the exhibition.

During the exhibition the picture window of the Weissenhofwerkstatt will be the setting of a video installation that is visible from the outside. Using the form of a community kitchen, the artists Ann-Kathrin Müller and Julia Schäfer will invite the general public to participate in this process and to taste the dishes prepared at four scheduled sessions. The visitors will also be invited to participate in a discussion.
A series of posters that accompanies the sessions of the community kitchen will be available as an edition.
