Introducing the Nowhere Kitchen project
The spring has come about, and it has not been so shy of making its presence felt through a million pollens flying through our skies. Change is the message of the spring. And change is what our supperclub is also experiencing. Aside from our Filipino supperclub project ‘Jeepney Stew’, we are happy to announce the opening of our new food / art experimental space called Nowhere Kitchen, a kitchen-based platform for collaborative practices co-laboured by Pepe, Ayumi, Marie, Alex and a growing community of friends. Based in Neukolln, the space is dedicated to cooking big ideas into small contexts. There, we will host various forms of gatherings including supperclubs, exhibitions and other ways of relating with the public (you!) and the local scene.

Northern South: an evening of flamenco | 1st of June 7.30pm
Nowhere Kitchen is happy to invite you to an evening filled with winds of Andalucian flavors. From paella and sangria to poetry and flamenco. The collaborator of this event, Jacob Arch, invites his friends from Granada, Slippery Elm and Raiz y Duende, to perform in our garden.
The artists performing are connected to the cultural association “Sala Vimaambi”, based in Granada, Spain and which has been promoting young, upcoming Flamenco artists since 1992. Sala Vimaambi is a family run foundation and was founded by Spanish poet Angela Argote (MAAM) and French filmmaker Vincent Biarnés. Apart from their function as a cradle for Flamenco musicians, Sala Vimaambi has been a home for travelling musicians and artists of diverse disciplines, where musicians of different backgrounds collaborate. http://www.vimaambi.com/
Jacob Arch, a Dutch folk musician and Slippery Elm, a Canadian poet have collaborated intensively with the collective of musicians of Sala Vimaambi, ‘Raiz Y Duende’, over the last years. With “South and North” the artists are bringing a unique night of poetry, folk and Flamenco to Berlin.
Suggested donation for performance: 12 Euros
This event has a limited number of participants. Please send a reservation at firstname.lastname@example.org

A delicious (vegetarian option possible) paella and sangria will be prepared in our kitchen lab
JEEPNEY STEW #04: Filipino Supperclub by Pepe
13 and 20 June (in two distinct locations)
Filipino food is back and Pepe cooks up a story featuring not so well-known flavors from the Southern Philippines (Mindanao islands) and translates it into a fresh and hearty menu that connects the Philippines even more to its neighbouring cultures in Indonesia, Malaysia and Papuan archipelagoes. To add with what is already becoming a tradition in Pepe’s supperclubs: eating with one’s hand food served on top of banana leaves; these two evenings in June will feature a rare performance from Pepe that tells a story-in-motion of his relationship with the pearls of the Philippine south.
More juicy details coming soon. To already reserve, please send Pepe a note at email@example.com
If you would like to have Pepe cooking Filipino food at your own home or your small events, Pepe also occasionally accepts private cooking gigs. His kitchensurfing profile is coming soon, but you can also email him personally firstname.lastname@example.org
BIBIMBAP FEST: Mixed media encounters @ the 48 Stunden Neukölln Artfest
48 STUNDEN NEUKÖLLN is a forum for artistic projects from the manifold art scene in Berlin today, presenting art dealing with societal issues. Since the festival was established in 1999, 48 STUNDEN NEUKÖLLN has become the largest festival of the arts in Berlin. Works of art that have been realised here serve as beacons beyond the limits of the district, dealing with issues in society as a whole, as well as facilitating interaction between artists, both here and internationally.
For this annual festival, the Nowhere Kitchen participates through a series of mixed media artists creating a relational environment in the space, with elements ranging from food, videos, games, haircuts, tarot cards, photography, dance and much more. Detailed program of artists and performances will be published next week at the nowhere kitchen website: http://www.nowherekitchen.com
Pop-up Opening hours:
Thursdays and Fridays, 3pm to 10pm
