Dining at the center of hearthplates-tectonic

Volcanic four-course wine menu by ULRICH KRAUSS

Vernissage Friday December 1, 2006 at 7 p.m.

The sun is boiling above us, the earth is boiling beneath us, and we are cooking in between. In order to cook, fire is needed. Understanding of this principle and experience indicate the beginning of human existence. Our masterminds might have copied their cooking-stove model from the chimneys of the terrestrial kitchen, the volcanoes; they put a volcanic cone with a flue upward on their furnace combined with a kitchen garden around it ... this is how dining at the center of hearthplates-tectonic once began.

It is undeniable that these firing feast installations were the first restaurants where people got together to be by the fire, to eat from the fire, to palava at the fire and to celebrate with the fire. Through technological progress and legal regulations, as well as through convenience and acceleration of our eating habits, the originally open fire and therefore the culture establishing, luscious and meaningful relation between fire, human existence, cooking, eating and feasting in fire-insured public places vanishes noticeable.

As a result of the discoveries and understandings of the 7th Internationaler Feuersalon 2006 on Volcano Stromboli to the subject of cooking with volcanoes? the eruption of this project cannot be prevented any longer.

For a period of two months the installation Firestation ZAGREUS will be a restoration of man's first fire station, the ancient space of the origin of cooking, art and culture. The pleasure of the fire works can only be crowned by the consumption of ULRICH KRAUSS's volcanic wine menu.
