I AM NOT A FORTUNE COOKIE

Fri 29.06 - 18:30 // CLUB NIGHT, EXHIBITION OPENING, TALK // ACUD STUDIO
I AM NOT A FORTUNE COOKIE

Understanding fetishisation, sexism, racism and cultural appropriation concerning people of Asian descent; and the intersections.
 
NO TICKETS ARE REQUIRED TO BE PURCHASED IN ADVANCE.
Donations can be given in person at the event.
 
We cannot change the foundation of society in one night, but let’s come together to create a tremor – one dance floor at a time.
Within these crevasses, seeds will be planted.
Seeds that may flourish and pollinate… spreading the awareness.

ABOUT
 
In April, an event named Happy Ending took place in Berlin. The event used an ancient erotic Japanese Shunga motif, promises of massages and (American invented) fortune cookies, and was hosted at a Vietnamese restaurant. This type of random, clumsy Asian stereotyping is offensive and harmful to the Asian community and is no way of celebrating culture. We decided to take this occasion and turn it into something positive.

FOOD
Dedicated to her family‘s nostalgia, JOALICIOUS, a food-passionate artist and an enthusiastic food pop up collaborator, provides variations of chi faan, a traditional handy food in Chinese speaking countries. Originally, sticky rice rolls, filled with You Char Kway (a Chinese doughnut), yuk sung (pork floss) & cha tsoi (pickled mustard plant). This once very popular streetfood is becoming more and more extinct in the streets of Hong Kong where her roots lie. *Also as a vegan version available!
