Event description

Description

Join us as we welcome Mona’s Kirsha Kaechele to talk about her new book, Eat the Problem.

Eat the Problem is a deluxe, genre-bending food and art compendium featuring a series of ‘recipes’ using invasive species—both real and surreal. Over 544 decadent pages, it features the contributions of artists whose work is in Mona’s permanent collection, as well as noted chefs, writers, scientists and philosophers from around the world.

Contributors include James Turrell, Marina Abramović, Andoni Luis Aduriz of Mugaritz, Germaine Greer, Heston Blumenthal, Mike Parr, Pablo Picasso, Enrique Olvera of Pujol, Laurie Anderson, Tim Minchin and many more.

Along with meditations on eating, destroying, or transforming invasive species into art, Eat the Problem includes recipes for life in the form of poetry, essays, scatological musings and interviews.

There will also be an accompanying Eat the Problem exhibition which opens at Mona on 13 April and runs through until 2 September.

6.30pm arrivals for 7.00pm start.
