Biotalk: Eat-a-ble

Thursday April 21. Public Lecture 20:30 - 22:00

Psychological disorder, or genius diet? Geophagy is the practice of eating soil, while contatto is a new culinary culture that proposes a new approach to the materiality of food. Artist Masha Ru awoke curiosity by producing a series of edible ceramic cups and invites you to eat clay and share your thoughts. Alternatively, designer Giulia Soldati advocates preparation and consumption of food with a focus on the hand, extending taste to the realm of touch. And Fashion designer Vita Stasiukynaite talks about a collection inspired by unusual shaped fruits, roots and vegetables. This Biotalk, we invite you to open your hands and minds to challenge your relationship with eating!

Join us! Drinks and food from 18:00, talks at 20:30.
