Sudanese Pop-up Restaurant

On Friday 11 March at 17:30, Framer Framed is excited to host a pop-up Sudanese restaurant prepared by members of the We Sell Reality collective, invited by artist Donghwan Kam. By creating a space wherein taste and conversation can flourish, we invite the public to share stories, experiences and personal insights with food as the context.

We Sell Reality is a social rebellion label consisting of ten social designers, most of whom came to the Netherlands as refugees and are now in limbo. We invite attendees to make a monetary donation towards the collective and the dishes they have lovingly prepared to facilitate social cohesion through shared dining.

This event is part of Do it together – DIT  which is an opportunity to focus on projects, ideas, and reflections without an exhibition as the context. Learn more about the public programs brought together for the DIT project HERE.

About

We Sell Reality is a social rebellion label which is set up as a collective with an open source character. We Sell Reality makes products and installations and creates performative interventions in public space. The team consists of around 15 social designers. Most members of the collective came here as refugees and are in limbo. The makeup of the team can change throughout various projects, who would like to join is welcome.

At Framer Framed We Sell Reality contributed to the online presentation Drawing Stories (2020) curated by Josien Pieterse as part of the online exhibition Corona in the City, organised by Amsterdam Museum. Since the beginning of 2021, Framer Framed opened its space for We Sell Reality. During this half year, the collective has been working to visualize their experience with deals the EU makes to keep refugees outside the continent. This resulted in the collective exhibited Powerplay – Deals All Over (2021), a colourful installation about the systematic exclusion of refugees from Europe, in the form of a toy shop for children. We Sell Reality organised a support event for Sudan and took part in Amsterdam Roots Festival and Museum Night 2021 at Framer Framed.
