Urban Sanatorium Supper
A supper for pathologic appetites will be served at 19:00h on 18 October 2009 in the WG Kunst, a former sanatorium as part of the Wilhelmina Gasthuis hospital complex, Amsterdam. The meal will be prepared with urban medicinal plants, harvested from in and around Amsterdam. Each course is a victual vaccine made of minute amounts of urbanic matter to provide resistance against and treatment for most of our urban ailments, real or hypochondric. From antiflogistisch aperitif to spleen-fortifying stew, this supper is sure to stave off persistent urban pathogens and unleash the hypochondric in all of us. Cooked up by Wietske Maas in collaboration with FoAM as part of the Blinde Vlekken manifestation.
