In the framework of the ongoing garbage crisis in Lebanon, a crisis that can be read as a potent symbol of the country’s often dysfunctional infrastructure and sectarian politics, Franziska Pierwoss and Sandra Teitge organize a dinner performance that addresses the multiple layers of this situation.

Assuming that politics do not only happen around the table in the private realm but also on an international level, Pierwoss and Teitge aim to renegotiate the nature of specific events and to debate food as a tool of power. During this culinary and discursive evening, questions of private and public responsibility, informal and formal economies, as well as associated phenomena such as international waste trade regulations along with affiliated violations will be raised and explored.

Call for participants: We invite students, professionals and everyone interested in the above-mentioned topics from the field of political science, urban planning, biotechnology, economics, architecture and art. When registering please provide a two-line info on your background and your interest in the topic.
