Samtalekøkkenet (translated “Discussion-kitchen” or “Eat-in Kitchen”) is a forum for a verbal and critical discussion about live art and performance art in plenum.

We invite critics and an audience to have a discussion with 3 artists, who also present their practice. The discussion takes its point of departure in the experiences of the audience as contrasted with the intentions of the artists. We enjoy a meal together and a glass of wine.  The purpose of our Samtalekøkken is to engage our guests in a discourse and exchange of ideas, that perhaps will influence the development of new works.  Since 2010, we have hosted about 35 Samtalekøkken events with about 100 artists in venus and festivals in Copenhagen, Roskilde, Aalborg, Turku, Helsinki, Malmö and more cities.
