A relic cooking class– eating your identity and discussing the past

Location: Battersea

We will be using the sculpting of maize dough into relics as a way of discussing interrelationship of food, memory, archival ethics and identity.

Using cornmeal dough we will create relic replicas of personal importance. During the sculpting we will discuss the relationship of Colombian Huacos (pre Hispanic artifacts from Latin American origin) to Europe, as well as relic’s general relationship to museums.
