Eat Design: Making Meaning through Material Culture with Sonja Stummerer and Martin Hablesreiter
What does it mean to eat? Sonja Stummerer and Martin Hablesreiter will investigate the historical and social background of our eating behavior and the way the design of dishes, cutlery, and dining furniture not only reflects societal norms but also determines them. With beautiful and provocative photographs to illustrate, they will also discuss how those designs influence our perception of flavor and give eating meaning. Their talk will range from the history of food design through cultural conventions around food to questions of sustainability.
A reception will precede the presentation.
Sonja Stummerer and Martin Hablesreiter of the Viennese architecture and design practice honey & bunny are also teachers, performance artists, and the authors of several books, including food design XL and eat design. They directed the movie “food design”, and have organized food design exhibitions at several museums, including the MuseumsQuartier Wien (Vienna); the Festival Center, Lodz, Poland; and the Victoria and Albert, London. They currently teach at the New Design University St. Pölten and the University of Salzburg.
