Koproduktion steirischer herbst & Schauplatz Kornberg im Meierhof zu Kornberg

There is hardly anything that interests consumers today as much as the question of the production and origin of foodstuffs. The project “Zum Verzehr” explores this topic where food is actually grown – out in the field. Tensions between farming and ecology are viewed in a new light, a pumpkin field becomes a shared space for art and interaction, hot pig ears are served as a token of hospitality.

The video installation “Kürbis(Kern)Feld” by Kurt Mayer with texts by Sissi Tax enacts work in the field as an unusual choreography of sharing in terms of motion and language. The video focuses particularly on the task of removing the seeds from pumpkins – a contemplative activity that brings people together.

“Wichteln und die Wuchteln”, the group around Ingrid and Oswald Wiener, Rosa Barba and Jan St. Werner organises a cooking concert “Heiße Ohren” (hot ears): pigs are a staple food and an economic factor in the region, but not their ears, which are now set to receive due appreciation. And the artist Tue Greenfort develops a public space project around the Meierhof for which he tests new agricultural models.
