Blanc-Mange Cinema Marathon

'Blanc-mange' [white eat], the well-known French dessert, has its roots in medieval times. Figuratively it means "nonsense" or "trivial matters". Although accused of being bland and unimaginative, white foods lend themselves to be painted like a blank canvas.

Structured as a slow-food event, 'Blanc-Mange Cinema' comprises a gastronomic, as well as cinematic experience. Food films will be screened on an edible projection surface of white foods. Course after course, the films unfold on a changing table-top-landscape, dependent on the viewer/diner's appetite. Blanc-Mange Cinema offers a tasty critique on the idea of the sterile 'white cube' gallery spaces where the 'do not touch' art dogma still reigns. In our case, art is something to be consumed and internalised with gusto.

This event is a part of FoAM's yearly theme 'nourish' and the first public event of f0amf0od. f0amf0od is a series of events that explore food as an additional medium in mixed reality settings. The process of preparation, presentation and consumption of food, its related cultural rituals, and their informal breaking are used to achieve the synaesthesia of sensual perception in responsive environments.
