openHUB Second Art Event: “Food/Eat Art”
at the Palazzina Sicentro and the Biblioteca Valvassori Peroni, Milano, Italy

Five European Art Events

The series of art events within the openHUB Europe project is focused around three main themes: 1. “Food/Eat Art”, 2. “Rural vs. Urban” and 3. “Po.rozumienie, Über.einkommen, Under.standing”. The series of events start with a zoom into an existential need of everyday life – food. It explores this cultural medium, which food definitely is, in various artistic ways in order to find out more about its meaning and its importance to the European society nowadays. The approach around this particular topic is transdisciplinary and will contain of practical actions, as cooking and artistic activities as performances, lectures and exhibition. A preview of this art event was first shown in Dresden during OSTRALE’O15 and will be shown now in Milan and be presented there on larger scale.

openHUB Europe is composed of Five Art Events. Every parter organization in Poland, Belgium, Italy and Germany organizes one Art Event during the two-years project. At every Art Event all openHUB Europe activities like exhibitions, artist in residencies, workshops for audience, professional trainings for the partner organizations, pannels discussions and events will take place.

Under the title OSTRALE.kontrovers on the 18th and 19th September, the focus of our activities, which will follow various formats, will be on politically educational aspects of art made by artists with migrant backgrounds and the inclusion of foreign cultures.  As well as guided tours of school classes with particular focus on the sensory depiction of current problems and issues surrounding society, migration and its treatment in other countries, there will be presentations and discussion forums, which will include practising local and international creative artists, who will debate current issues surrounding the effects of culture on social processes.
