about the project

Fittja Food & Art
16 September 2017
Fittja Kitchen

Botkyrka konsthall continues the tradition of creating an art event in Fittja a weekend in September. This year’s theme wants to highlight what we all have in common: the meal and food! Join us for a day of art and taste experiences by the Fittja Kitchen!


Artist Sookyoung Huh invites us to a Kimchi experience where we explore the many dimensions of this globally popular Korean fermented dish. Kimchi is known for its many health benefits and is often prepared before winter. It is also a dish with many variations and adaptions that shows how food cultures are preserved and develop through times and generations. The workshop Kimchi Stories will consist of making your own kimchi, cooking and sharing a meal together by the Fittja Kitchen.

The collective and ongoing artwork Baghdad Café has been travelling all over the world and is now happening in Fittja. The artist Al Fadhil invites us to continue on the work that was initially mobilized in 2003 as a reaction to the Iraq war and with the purpose of gathering words, images and expressions from everywhere it goes. Join the artist, embroider and draw on the linen cloth, drink tea and meet some new friends.

In the Pop-up Prose & Poetry Bar: Everyday Life is a Fantastic Myth artist Nisrine Boukhari is interpreting your prose, poetry or spoken word in the form of a specially designed drink. Bring your favourite poem or improvise at the bar!

Junior Residence: every summer, 6 youths from Botkyrka get to work with an art project. This year the group has been exploring the framing of a meal.

Summer art camp presents playful food & art creations in collaboration with local pre-schools and Mångkulturellt centrum.
