Rather than exploring the fabric of society, Social Pudding is interested in the pudding of society--the convergence of social, business, personal and everyday activities into one compact substance. By engaging with and entering the pudding, you soon become aware that every jiggling movement is a reverberration of every action around you.
Facilitating the act of making and sharing a plate of pudding, Social Pudding, a collaboration with Rirkrit Tiravanija, addressed the communities of Leipzig with dynamic workshops and events at the Galerie für Zeitgenössische Kunst in 2003. Participants were invited to come to the Pudding Social to exchange and create their own edible pudding.
The pudding product – a combination of distinct layers consisting of orange and coconut flavours – was inspired by the pudding produced by food processing company Dr. Oetker, the main sponsor of Galerie für Zeitgenössische Kunst. Pudding workshops have also been held in Bangkok, Copenhagen and Los Angeles.
Social Pudding is a social and culinary intervention that encourages its users to engage in relational processes of creating an edible product, wherein the process and the consumption of the resulting dessert, bind us together as a social coagulate.
