About Hedonistika

Hedonistika is a new festival for various approaches in gastronomical robots, cooking machines, molecular cuisine and experimental food performances.

Created by monochrom (co-organizers of the prime festival for cocktail robotics), Hedonistika wants to extend the realms of radical man-machine interaction and wants to go where no slave-driven extruder engine has ever gone!

Hedonistic robots, unite! Makers, rejoice! Food and drinks for humans and bots, uplifting experiments in food processing and snack delivery are on the way.

Created as an international festival, travelling from city to city and culinary landscape to culinary landscape, Hedonistika wants to find local curatorial partners and cooperate with local hackers, builders, chemists and phood phreaks to present a tour-de-farce of new approaches and discourses. Let’s not only build new gadgets, let’s also analyze and deconstruct the processes that the horrible agro-chem industry uses to create and sell us cheap and sickening crap! Let’s free ourselves and our machine buddies! Let’s crack the patents of Monsanto, the copyrights of Kraft — and don’t let us trick ourselves into the absurd belief that organic food and machines are enemies. They aren’t. It’s the system, dummies!

You don’t play with food? Well, not enough, we’d say!
