NOWHERE KITCHEN: A PRESENTATION BY JOSEPH PATRICIO – MAY 28

NowHere Kitchen is a social research platform that derives its philosophies from cooking practices. Cooking with what is there – is the departure point. And the focal space is the kitchen, a space where collaboration can begin in the most basic way – out of hunger. It is a breathing space, an incubator for failures, and a generator of the local and localized contexts. It is liminal. It is home. This is a presentation by NowHere Kitchen founder and MPA-B Co-Labourer Joseph Patricio who together with the amazing chef Ayumi Masa Saito prepared a delicious meal during Ilya Noe’s Artistic Research programme at the MPA-HUB on Wednesday May 29th.
