Potato Talks: Kitchen Recollections, Jerusalem Edition
By Mirna Bamieh 
Thursday 9 March 2017
Location to be announced
16:00 -18:00
Potato Talks Project is a public performance project created by Palestinian visual artist Mirna Bamieh, staged in different cities and countries every time with a new and different theme, inviting 10 people to engage with the artist in a process to become Potato Talks storytellers.
The third edition in Jerusalem will share stories about the generation kitchen of different communities inhabiting the old city for centuries. We will hear Jerusalem storytellers recalling stories that their great grandfathers brought with them from India, Uzbekistan, Chad, Sudan, Morocco, Armenia and other countries, and how they weave these stories into their current life they are experiencing in the old city, Jerusalem. 
Stories are like Potatoes they come from the land, magic happens when they are brought from the closed doors of kitchens to the street, becoming the canvas for storytelling, re-calling attention to seemingly insignificant acts, celebrating the ordinary, and uncovering a new layer of interaction in the city.
This project is generously supported by the Representative Office of Switzerland in Ramallah.
