Our festival tent, with its unique atmosphere, will again serve as a lively festival centre between the Ehrenhof and the Orangerie for the entire KunstFestSpiele.

freitagsküche, from Frankfurt, provide a culinary and artistic backdrop for all participants and visitors to the festival and gardens: during the day as a café and canteen, in the evening as a bar and restaurant. Here artists and audience can meet in a relaxed atmosphere or take a look inside

the kitchen. Openness and variety are the principles of both the tent and freitagsküche. The popular ‘table talks’, during which audiences can get into conversation with the artists at a post-performance dinner, will again take place on selected dates. And the well known american cultural expert and music journalist Matthew Gurewitsch appears for talks with Peter Sellars and Pierre-Laurent Aimard in the festival tent.

As in previous years, Feinkost Lampe, Hanover-Linden’s ‘spatial-sound specialists’, are curating the club programme of concerts, DJ set and premiere parties for the festival’s central meeting place.

For freitagsküche, food is the ideal medium to initiate a social togetherness in which art also has a place. This social dimension of food and cooking is at the heart of freitagsküche, where the aim is to cook and talk, share and discuss, and of course to eat together. Join us at the table: freitagsküche serves small and large refreshments, coffee and cold drinks in the festival tent from morning to night.

After selected events and concerts, audiences again have the opportunity to get to know the participants in a relaxed atmosphere. For our ‘table talks’ the appearing artists suggest the menus. The freitagsküche chefs cook to order or interpret the suggestions like a score. And once the dishes are on the table they serve as a first talking point.

Sharing food together inspires talk and creates personal contact. And so both sides develop a retrospective new view of the performance. And if you haven’t seen the show, you can still have a very interesting evening. freitagsküche, from Frankfurt, has applied this principle since its foundation in 2004, thus encouraging much interchange between the city’s various cultural circles. The connection between art and cooking has a particular tradition in Frankurt, and goes back to the restaurant in the Städelschule established by Prof. Peter Kunelka in the 1990s. As an art project and communication format, freitagsküche has been a regular guest at many international cultural institutions.
