The FIELD KITCHEN ACADEMY is an interdisciplinary educational residency programme that gathers artists/ creative minds, a resident chef and prominent experts from different fields together around a kitchen table through mind-opening acts and actions.

On its second edition, a total of 11 interdisciplinary residents will be selected to join the upcoming FIELD KITCHEN ACADEMY in its three modules. Curated by Ece Pazarbaşı, this year, under the title of THE CURIOUS LOOP, we will use the notion of loops-in-sound as a gateway to other concepts of repetition, offering a variety of individual and collective experiences.

Loops represent a time that is suspended, which is a compressed source of the past, present and the future. The loop also oscillates between the known and the unknown; as for the viewer and listener it could unfold to a future of known (as it repeats the same material over and over again), but also it may relate to an unknown (as surprises are always welcome), and one never knows if the loop will be broken with an unknown sound or visual component – no matter how well defined and repeated the loop has developed in the past. If one cannot step into the same river twice, and if one opens to perception with all senses, what differences can we find in each loop?

Composed of three intertwined modules that allow for different durations in the residency, the program is open to application from all disciplines and all walks of life. The selected residents will have the opportunity of pursuing processes of experimentation, discussion, trial and error, the progression of knowledge, and know-how in working sessions during the first 3 weeks. The last half week will be the ’simmering’ period where the residents are expected to do NOTHING but only LISTENING.
