Conflict Kitchen is a take-out restaurant that only serves cuisine from countries with which the United States government is in conflict. Each Conflict Kitchen iteration is augmented by events, performances and discussions about the culture, politics and issues within each country upon which we focus. The restaurant rotates identities in response to current geopolitical events.
Special thanks to: Witness for Peace | Acción Permanente por la Paz, Orlando Luis Pardo Lazo, and all of the Cubans and Cuban-Americans who participated in this speech.
Obama performed by Ron Butler.
Conflict Kitchen is funded primarily through food sales. Additional support comes from the Benter Foundation, The Sprout Fund, and The Studio for Creative Inquiry.
