The work was part of the seminar Exploring Historical and Theoretical Roots by Nora Sternfeld in 2016. The Manifesto was a direct response to the Pop up Exhibition presented by the National Museum of Helsinki: 'Refugee, Evacuee, Human'.
Rice pudding is a dish that transcends nations and can be found in variations around the globe. The action was simple. Prepare a 'magical pudding' and make people sign a pledge for togetherness. This playful work calls for are more inclusive environment while simultaneously highlights the nature of consumerism, where a pledge can be exchanged for a simple meal. In the end, the authors (Ali Akbar Mehta
, Jernej Čuček Gerbec, Jonne Kauko
, Martina Miño Perez
) still maintain that the pledge ought to be respected.
