Traveling Waste // Reiseabfälle
Speisekino / Food and Footage
Location: Zentrum für Kunst und Urbanistik (ZK/U), Berlin
Date: 11 July, 2019
CUW curates a series of short documentaries to trace the invisible travel of waste and creates a menu in cooperation with Foodsharing. Inspired by the documentaries, the menu is made of ingredients that are close to expiring and probably will end up in the rubbish, and they are transformed into a delicious dish. The students of the Urban Management Program, Technische Universität Berlin, design a variety of Tischsets illutrating the flows of different resources (e.g. e-waste, chocolate, clothes, e-bikes), which were distributed to visitors with the menu. The event is followed by a discussion with the public to provoke questions around the value, politics and ethics of waste.
