A Cookbook for Political Imagination, Zachęta Narodowa Galeria Sztuki, Sternberg Press, Warszawa, 2011

The publication A Cookbook for Political Imagination (2011) accompanies the exhibition … and Europe will be stunned for the Polish Pavilion at the 54th Biennale of Art in Venice.

This is not a traditional exhibition catalogue but rather a manual of political instructions and recipes, delivered by more than 40 international authors. Covering a broad spectrum of themes, the cookbook comprises manifestos, artistic contributions, fictional stories to elements of visual identity, food recipes, social advice and guidance for members of the movement. It is the first book published under the auspices of the Jewish Renaissance Movement in Poland, and has been edited by the curators of the exhibition, Sebastian Cichocki and Galit Eilat, and designed by Guy Saggee from Shual Studio (Tel Aviv). A Cookbook for Political Imagination includes contributions by Gish Amit, Yazid Anani, Ariella Azoulay, Marek Beylin, Achim Borchardt-Hume, Andrea Geyer, Anka Grupińska, Mika Hannula, Daniel Hendrickson, Rafał Jakubowicz, Wam Kat, Yuval Kremnitzer, Renzo Martens, Oliver Ressler, Sarah Rifky, Lia Perjovschi, Stefanie Peter & Phillipp Goll, Avi Pitchon, Chantal Pontbriand, Ila Ben Porat, Steven ten Thije, James Trainor, WHW and others.
