About this event

Abstract:

Everyone who has been to Palestine has a unique experience. For thousands of years, this land has been a key stop of the spice trade route to the Mediterranean area. The movement caused by trade and ethnic migration contributes to exchanges of diverse cultures, traditions, and food in the area. Because of long-term political turmoil, Palestine has become synonymous with conflicts in the eyes of many. Freedom of movement should be a basic human right, yet a luxury for many Palestinians. They live on both sides of concrete walls and are separated by countless checkpoints. They have identification cards in different colours. The colour difference is not only an approach to further restrict movement but also a way to split up the ties among Palestinian communities. However, unlike the 'imprisoned body' by political influence, food culture has developed vividly and become one way to express their status of symbols, history, tradition, and values. It has also become a common topic among all communities. In this sharing event, Chi will share her observations about the connection between food, resistance and identity/values during her travels there as an artist.

巴勒斯坦——每位流連過、觸碰過、經歷過、感受過的都不盡相同。千年以來,這地區位處通往地中海重要的香料貿易之路上,因貿易、民族遷移所產生的「移動」,使得各傳統、文化與食物面向上的交融。 因長期政治情勢,「衝突」卻成為這裡既定印象中的代名詞。然而,移動應為一種基本權利,在這裡卻是一種特權。這堵將土地劃分開來的隔離牆、重重的檢查站,以及不同顏色的身份證明,不停劃分著巴勒斯坦人之間的緊密聯繫。與當今受政治影響所受限的身體不同,在民族與土地認同的衝突中,其中食物成了傳遞身份象徵、歷史、文化與價值觀的其一途徑,也成為各方間的共同話題。這場分享朱筱琪透過柴米油鹽如何成為巴勒斯坦人重要的抵抗與認同標誌。
