Brandstof: Speaking of Land and Seasons by Seasonal Neighbours
24 May 2023 Starts at: 7 p.m. Location: Garage Rotterdam

Speaking of Land and Seasons | Stories on contemporary farming and fieldwork by Seasonal Neighbours 

Take a deep dive into the exhibition At the Table during our in-depth programme Brandstof on Wednesday 24 May. For the evening, the curators Tiiu Meiner and Rawad Baaklini invited the collective Seasonal Neighbours to host a four part story-telling session, about participating in the seasonal farming cycle.

Anastasia, Ioana, Max, and Yacinth will share their experience about their fieldwork as pickers in Belgium and the Netherlands. Using a series of objects and memorabilia connected to this fieldwork, they will touch upon aspects of seasonality and labour, cohabitation and land, as well as how their experiences have influenced their creative research. The format of the event will simultaneously engage the audience in a reflective discussion about what it is to work in the realities of farming today, and the challenges of avoiding extractivist practices for artists and exhibition spaces. 

The event features a story-telling inspired dinner. 

Borscht | Beetroot soup with pickled vegetables 
Dolmas | Filled mallow leaves with rice, wild herbs and nuts 
Grilled aubergines | Served with wild herbs and flowers 
Strawberry salad
