Blind ETEN

As part of an extensive research into eye-health, a life without sight and spiritual quest, a research was held in collaboration with visually-impaired/ blind people in order to understand their relation to food. During Museumnight 2018 in Amsterdam, a 5-course dinner was held by the artist/chef in collaboration with Chef Thor, as a transition of these stories from the visually-impaired to a wider audience. Each dish contains an ingredient that boosts up the eye-health.

"While you taste food primarily with your mouth, you experience it very differently without sight. For the Museum Night, culinary artist Asli Hatipoglu & our own Mediamatic chef Thorwald Voss prepared a series of dishes made for the senses, that gain strength without vision"- Mediamatic, Amsterdam 2021-01-11 at 14_43_40.jpg
