Eat to Remember - Eat to Forget

Berlin, 2010

The performance invites the visitors to remember or to forget through the act of eating. Depending on their choice, guests are led individually to a dedicated space where they can either eat a cookie to remember or one to forget. Every participant is invited to sit down, surrender to the process and allow memories to flow in their own time before rejoining the waiting area. Visitors can leave their memories on white cards which are laid out in the space.

Concept & Performance: Mahela Rostek and Martina von Holn

The work was shown as part of Berlin festival '48 Stunden Neukölln 2010'.
