Rethinking The Table is a two week residency program that looks into re conceptualize the communal dining table. Challenging both the physical parameters of the table and the symbolic layers of meaning manifest in communal eating. The residency utilized a series of workshops, excursions, group discussions, interventions & rituals, as well as each participant’s personal creative practices to build collectively tow dinners as exhibition with local guests.

We conceive of the table and the act of eating together as an entry point into a myriad of politically and socially charged conversations. We sought to use this simple act as a lens through which we can examine, research, deconstruct and ultimately rethink our relationship to food, eating and the each other.
