Culinary rituals or how to organize a synaptic collection of thoughts in images from an interdisciplinary collaboration
Rituales culinarios o cómo organizar una colección sináptica de pensamientos en imágenes a partir de una colaboración interdisciplinar

Conference – online, October 25, 2022, 05.45 – 7.15 pm

Because of the new scenarios of virtual teaching during the Covid-19 pandemic, eight female university professors from different disciplines in Europe and South America (Argentina, Austria, Spain, Uruguay) agree to revise their educational strategies and research methodologies with one premise: to jointly organize a collection of multi-categorized images about the environments of certain culinary rituals, based on the kitchens designed by three precursor architects.

To carry out an action-research on the topic in a virtual collaborative platform. To reflect on the cultural diversity and social character of our discipline, emphasizing its precise character with documents and works from different origins. To glimpse new learning for change from case studies such as the kitchens designed by Grete Schütte-Lihotzky, Lina Bo Bardi and Charlotte Perriand.

We propose a synaptic workshop as a line of university, poly-geographic and multidisciplinary collaborative work and we formulate a model of data collection in strata that reformulate the research of the participants and from which we will obtain variables, with which to build a document according to the characteristics of the elements studied. These values may vary depending on the variable and the situations that the researchers want to consider.

We use a platform to visualize multiple approaches, formal reformulations, continuities and transformations of the theme, encouraging an iterative debate. As in the "Warburgian" methodology, we constantly interrogate the sources brought by the participants.

First, we incorporated graphic documents and texts into the virtual board with justification. We organized them according to the aforementioned variables: image, language, montage, action, design, ritual, object and imaginary, and we established connections between categories, generating new interpretations.

Convinced of thinking in images as a synthesis of visuality and culture, this experiment verifies the alignment between academia and practice, teaching and learning from travel, travel and everyday life such as culinary rituals. This way of thinking through forms of photography, ethnographic drawing, and other graphics, generates a collaborative associative iconology necessary to reformulate the research processes in an era of excess of sources where reflecting on the discourses generated is the path proposed from these collections of images of culinary rituals.
