Planetary Supper Club at The Real and Other Fictions

The Planetary Sculpture Supper Club at The Real and Other Fictions

“The Planetary Sculpture Supper Club: Lisbon” occupies a room of The Real and Other Fictions, an exhibition curated by Mariana Pestana for Close, Closer.

From 15 September to 14 December, the Lisbon Architecture Triennale invites you to sit at the table with renowned editor and journalist Carlos Vaz Marques to discuss current topics with leading protagonists in Portuguese culture while savouring exceptional thematic menus developed by the Center for Genomic Gastronomy. Their work explores the intersection of food, culture, ecology and technology, playing with notions of etiquette, hierarchy and the socio-political implications of everyday food choices. The project explores the co-evolution of gastronomy and larger ecological, technological and political systems. At Palácio Pombal, the Center for Genomic Gastronomy present a dining experience where space, menus and discussions are designed to complement each other.


Slow Expectations
After a century of speed, are we ready for a radical slowing down? Food served under this theme will be the result of the most ineffective processes in terms of growing, transportation and distribution, as well as forms of cooking, serving and consuming it. Conversation will address issues of quickness, self-imposed slowness, and the possibility of choice, finding another pace and another rhythm, on the outer edge of that which global capitalism dictates.

Decadence for All
Are the experiences of true decadence only within the reach of the privileged few? Is the universal access to pleasure and joy a goal worth fighting for? The food served under this theme will resort to ingredients and recipes originating from intensive exploitative practices. It should also simulate decadent meals, placing these absurd and fantastic ingredients at everybody’s disposal. The conversation can revolve around the issue of the 1%, namely, the way we are partly to blame for a consumption society that produces so many choices and so much waste, and the
political power wielded by the search for pleasure in the face of austerity.

Recipes for Disaster
There seems to be a widespread interest nowadays in the various millennial variants of this tradition, namely, both those who anticipate a global disaster by preparing against it, and those who view it as inevitable. Food served in the course of this debate will touch upon end-of-the-world and last suppers stories. The conversation will revolve around the idea of the death and rebirth of the world as we know it and how we can prepare for the worst and still make a good meal out of it.
