Ashkal Alwan is pleased to organize the fourth and final Sharjah Biennial 13 Off-site project, Upon a Shifting Plate. Themed around the keyword culinary, Upon a Shifting Plate will take place on 14 and 15 October across Beirut, where talks, workshops, walks, cooking sessions and other events will explore the production and consumption of culinary heritage and how our eating habits shape our psychological and cultural dispositions. Visit to read “The Millstones Rumble When the Wheat is Ground (Notes on the Culinary),” where the editors Omar Berrada, Amal Issa, Kaelen Wilson-Goldie, and Brian Kuan Wood introduce the keyword “culinary” by drawing on an array of theoretical and methodological frameworks, inquiries and reflections. ------ Drawings by Ali Eyal.
