Conflict Kitchen

Located in a kiosk within the park surrounding the Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh, Conflict Kitchen is both a restaurant and a socially engaged public art project that only serves cuisine from countries with which the USA is in conflict. The project, created by Jon Rubin and Dawn Weleski, rotates identities every few months in relation to current geopolitical events and has included North Korea, Cuba, Iran, and Venezuela. The current version of Conflict Kitchen is Afghanistan.
