In Salad we trust


Lecture performance: Institutional critique to taste, illustrated by the five flavours. Variable dimensions.


Visitors were invited to taste the critique that institutions are mainly concerned with balancing power relations instead of focussing on content-related (collaborative) work in the form of five different samples. Each of the bites was focused on one of the five tastes (sweet, sour, salty, bitter & umami) and became almost inedible. The bites were labelled with five comments on taste and personality and were served on a tongue-shaped table.
