Anna Bürkli, Emanuel Tschumi, Pius Tschumi: Cooking as a Praxis of Contemporary Art:
For artists, the kitchen offers an ideal field for differentiated aesthetic comments and statements—in the here and now. Works that reflect the process of cooking and eating place the mouth, and its double function with the tongue, as an organ for tasting and speaking at the center of things. Alimentation realia, along with their nutritional task, also have a symbolic meaning. A sensually illustrated lecture with degustation.

With Anna Bürkli, Solothurn, curator and director Stadtgalerie Bern; Emanuel Tschumi, Zurich, graphic designer and Pius Tschumi, Zurich, scenographer.
Réservoirs – the guest_*talks series 2010/2011

The guest_*talks series Réservoirs at the F+F School of Art and Media Design in Zurich offers short cuts to money, value and art and presents models for discussion that go beyond the production of classical values. 

Without belief and trust neither financial management nor art would exist. Credit comes from credo and means 'I believe'. A financial system subject to a crisis of confidence is doomed to collapse. The classical artist—who since the Renaissance has, next to God, assumed the role of creator—does not live from his profession but, as always, from his higher calling. The Medici, a dynasty of bankers and patrons of the arts, had already set the example of a link between money, value and art and, by financing art, used the reverence for Christ as a lever for breaking the power of the Vatican. Political and symbolic power is as ever reinforced by capital reserves, which must first of all be generated. The European colonial empires since the 15th century as well as the world powers after World War II had assured an access, above all, to cheap labor and raw material. Taking such reservoirs into account is what, even today, enables the accumulation of added value.
