FGFG — A Kitchen Debate

Artists, designers, critics, cooks, activists, etc. are invited to demonstrate their approach to the issue of food and its production on 01.17, 02.03, 03.16

‘FGFG—A Kitchen Debate’ examines two opposing views of organisation: vertical organisation, that of engineer Frank Gilbreth (FG1) who advocated ‘the scientific management of labour’; and the transversal, revolutionary organisation of the psychotherapist and philosopher, Félix Guattari (FG2). Via a programme of conferences-performances, we will focus specifically on a place that they both analysed at great length: the kitchen.

Artists, designers, critics, cooks, activists, etc. will be invited to demonstrate their approach to the issue of food and its production. On both the individual and collective level, as well as its relationship to the local and the global. The intention is neither to separate nor to prioritise theory over practice. In short, the aim is to present their philoso-food in favour of a new organisational ecology.

This initial series will comprise of three ‘Kitchen Debates’ that will be held at the Van Eyck:
