ArtMeatFlesh 2 was a live cooking show in Stavanger, Norway where two teams of artists and scientists faced-off in the kitchen. Confronting lab grown meat, future food cults, and a secret ingredient, the two teams competed onstage to win the votes of an audience and judging panel with very strong stomachs.
Guests were invited to taste, debate, embrace or reject a future where meat from animals has disappeared entirely. The two teams prepared recipes and rituals from the future, helping to decide if mankind should move towards automated protein factories or strange new festivals of excess and penance.
“Through presentations, videos, questions from the audience and 10 different dishes, our mind and palate was inspired to new reflections on today’s food production and the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead.”
