no. 2 – Vera Drebusch

October 26th, 2017, 7pm 
The Vinegar Man, Dundalk

Cologne German artist Vera Drebusch will visit Dundalk during October to visually and personally explore the border situation and its effect on the local community. This will culminate in a seafood dinner to which we invite selected guests from the area.
Vera plans to go out to sea with local fishermen from both sides of the border and bring in some catch from underneath the invisible border on the water. Both freshly prepared seafood and the opportunity to engage in discussion will be served by the artist.
This dinner is part performance, part intercultural, personal and culinary exchange on the topic of borders.
