Transcultural Eat Art as a cookbook and ebook

An art project grounded on the occasion of the Austria-Japan-Year 2009. In an interdisciplinary approach the focus is directed on Eat-Art and Design. The table, especially the dining table or the guest table, serves herewith as metaphor, social allegory and central creative element. The underlying concept in the encounters between Austria and Japan is here the one of transculturality based on the article of the philosopher Wolfgang Welsch “Transculturality - the Puzzling Form of Cultures Today”. Whereas the traditional concept of single cultures, envisages cultures as closed spheres or autonomous islands, which in best case can exist next to each other in a separatist way, the concept of transculturality emphasizes interconnectedness, cultural entanglement, the heterogeneous and hybrid identity. While also the concepts of interculturality and multiculturality derive from the homogenizing exclusive idea of cultures, transculturality is based on inclusiveness, albeit differing from global uniformization.

Eat-Art as artistic expression enables the sensual perception of complex transcultural processes. The table and the mutual meal offer as stylistic device a plenitude of creative opportunities to express forms of unity. The table is the place for communication, sharing of food, time and emotions. Transcultural Eat-Art foresees a serial of events in Vienna and Tokyo, from May to November 2009, created by artists, designers, cultural actors and architects who live in Austria and Japan. All events will in different ways tackle the social and communicative aspects of sharing a table for a meal, the interplay of identities and metamorphosis. The projet participants from Austria and Japan will by means of exchange and interaction explore similarities, differences and overlappings.

The project is structured in three components which are compiled as recipe-collections 1 - 3 in an ebook, the “Cookbook Transcultural”:

  1. Table landscape transcultural
  2. The Fire-Table
  3. Table fellowships
