TRAVEL

in HOME/THEME
WHY WE TRAVEL

We no longer travel because it is “the thing” to go abroad. Just at present, as a matter of fact, it is more fashionable to stay at home. But – means permitting – we must travel, and this is for the following reasons:

for health
for education
to get away from things
to realize the limitation of our own views.
to be able to improve  conditions at home
to appreciate the various kinds of beauty in the world
to find our level internationally
to have something to talk about it
to have something to look back upon.
and last, but not least, in order
… to appreciate home.

How You Eat, You Live Your Life | Food and Culture – a state of mind

in HOME/THEME

Our memory is made of fragments of recollections. One theory in psychology says life is not the one we actually live, but the one we remember.

I open the album of memory. I leaf through it until I reach the chapter „Food – Culture (Geographical Area) – Personality (State of Mind)”. Keep Reading

CONVIVIALITY

in THEME

CONVIVIALITY, a word with etymological roots in Latin- L convivialis < convivium, a feast < convivere, to celebrate together < com-, together + vivere, to live – and originally describing human gatherings around a feast or banquet, in a friendly atmosphere, has continued to expand its meaning – it now pertains to many different contexts, whether domestic, work-related, or even larger organisms, such as cities. Why is it important to get together over meals? What happens when a group of friends decide to run an art space together? How inspiring and lyrical can the intimacy of a couple in their moments of togetherness be? Can bonds be created between humans and the surrounding objects or plants? How can the participation and concerted effort of individuals around the globe bring together an entire world in a 7 metre long space at the call of one artist? How the circumstantial confrérie between an artist and a group of workers led to the creation of a majestic artwork. How can clothes act as symbols of social cohesion? Stay together, share, be there for others – also retire in solitude sometimes, to ponder, to reflect – but always return to conviviality!
