DASH CAFÉ: Clouded Lands and a New Cold War?

Wednesday 26 April
Main Space
free

In a nutshell

Gastro-performance, live music and conversation with artists, authors and journalists exploring the nuclear and political fallout from Chernobyl 31 years on.

Go on...

Our April Dash Café takes place within Food of War’s Clouded Lands exhibition at Rich Mix, a show of photography, installation, painting, gastro-performance, sculpture and filming that explores the impact of the Chernobyl nuclear catastrophe, precisely 31 years on.

As part of our Clouded Lands Cafe, we’ll sample the gastro-performance and discuss the work and wider issues with several of the participating artists from Food of War including Zinaida Lihacheva, Hernan Barros and Omar Castaneda inspired by Noble prize winner Svetlana Alexeivich's Chernobyl Prayer, plus BBC journalist Lucy Ash and Foreign Editor of The Sunday Times Peter Conradi author of the very newly published Who Lost Russia? How the World Entered a New Cold War. Additionally there'll be hauntingly beautiful live music from Ukrainian songstress Iryna Muha.

What to Expect

Lively conversation. Live music. Visual Art. Gastro performance
