The Futurist Meal

Thursday 31 March

Throughout history many radical thinkers have attempted to build a better world by overthrowing the conventions of the past and attempting to create brand new cultures. One such movement was Futurism, an artistic and social crusade that enthusiastically embraced modernity, technology and industry. Futurism influenced many spheres of life in the early 20th century, spanning art, music, science and poetry. One of its most abiding legacies has been changing our understanding of cooking as an ‘everyday art’ and forming the foundational principles of food science through their doctrine of bringing the laboratory into the kitchen. Prof Neil Cox, from Edinburgh College of Art, joins Charlie Harry Francis, culinary inventor and founder of Lick Me I’m Delicious, for an experimental Futurist meal inspired by Marinetti's 1930 Manifesto of Futurist Cooking, in an event hosted by author and broadcaster Zoe Cormier. Expect a specially created soundscape from sound artist Dave House, Futurist avant-garde poetry from Calum Roger, confrontational canapes and disturbing dishes as we go beyond the beyond at this unique event.
