The Buffet








“The buffet” is the second part of the interdisciplinary project “Asia Bistro”.

Spring rolls or sushi, pho or pad Thai, rice or tofu. It does not matter from which land the food comes from, everything can be found in an Asia Bistro. The popularity of Asia Bistros reflects the fact that the cuisines and cultures from Asia are generalized and labelized in one category in Germany. The asian identities have been used to be put together in one pot. The cliché about the Asian cultures will be re-created and spiced up with a bit of humour and surrealness. Tofu and skin, spring rolls and hair. The food and the body are in merge with each other. Both are ready to be served, to be consumed and to be taken away.
