Martina Della Valle per Essen A Taste Magazine©
We’re already at the third day, today it’s the fourth, of TASTE BERLIN, the Berlin Food Festival. At its first edition, this one is different from all the Tastes we visited in Europe, being a lively meeting point for all the most interesting matters concerning food. Organized by Direktorenhaus, a duo made up of Katja Kleiss and Pascal Johanssen which deals with graphics, illustrations and, as it seems, with food. The program is not attempt to retrace the chefs’ dinners and tastings, or to become a “sensorial experience”, but it is rather a beautiful selection of established and up-and-coming talents who use food and everything around it as an instrument of research, both for design and cultural matters, concerning food production and the economic implications it envolves.
Berlin, a city full of vintage and exploded art studies which are somehow confused by now, presents with Taste a clear promise for the city of organic food and provides dialogue between artists, designers, philosophers, food-stylists and farmers (mostly German) about the theme of food.
A dense program will include Exhibitions, Lectures, Workshops, eat art performances, presentations, Visions, Dinners, Tastings, with guests like Marjie Vogelzang the thinker food designer, Ayako Suwa‘s sensual and sensitive food, Daniel Emma, Alexander Pelikan, Debbie Wijskamp, Grondvormen, Alina Dorsch e Mareike Rittig, our friends from Studio Appetite, Karin Lucas, Knol, Thomas Eurlings, Telse Bus.
Among the guests, there will be also our talent Marcella Foschi with her thesis partner Alice Gemignani and the project Fugu.
The Taste will last until June 10. If you are not in Berlin, download the program and take a plane.
