Joachim Robbrecht — The Discrete Charm of Marxism
< OVERVIEW
The Discrete Charm of Marxism

In octobre 2014 I performed the host in Bojan Djordjev's dinnerpiece The discrete Charm of Marxism.

Exploring the notion of “food for thought”, The Discrete Charm of Marxism stages a reading group according to the dramaturgy of a six course meal. The audience is invited to dinner but instead of consuming food it is served texts consisting of Marxist quotes on class positions/investments in critique of capitalism, varying in length and mode of consumption depending weather they come as “starters”, “fish”, “roast” or selection of “local cheeses”. The audience is invited to communally consume/read/discuss the food. The “food” and entire dinner iconography is rendered through paper and graphic layout, while real food and drinks are  served in the library shelves – as books.
