There have been some exciting publications on the Silent Dinners lately. First of all I would like to congratulate Sonia Nair, whose review of the first Silent Dinner Party for Melbourne Fringe Festival 2012 won express media review of the year for 2012. It was a pretty special occasion, and Sonia’s review is indeed a lovely piece of writing. In Sonia’s words “I believe the award bears testament to the unique nature of the event which rendered my review all the more interesting :)” Read it here.
Also, in 2012, a student of the University of Amsterdam submitted her thesis for a Master of Artistic Research in the Humanities titled How do we value hospitality today? Taking hospitaity further based on the examples of Kipras Dubauskas ‘Lost Hour’ and Honi Ryan’s Silent Dinner Party. The candidate Weronika A. Zielinska did very well with her thesis, my congrats go out to her achievement on a paper I thoroughly enjoyed reading! Sooper Dooper Yay! Weronika also runs the artist run initiative Upominki in Rotterdam.
