Empathy Supper is a monthly cooking celebration curated by the Berlin-based Indonesian culinary and art collective “Soydivision”. It is a 5-course supper serving modern Indonesian cuisine that integrates storytelling mirroring the bond between the progressive cultural movement of Indonesia with the heritage formed by the myriad local traditions and the diverse foreign influence brought about by Indonesia’s centuries old role as a trading hub. At the end of every edition, at least one guest artist will perform, often drawing inspiration from current global and local events. The Supper aims to be a catalyst for empathy and compassion, through culinary experience and performative artistic expression. Each and every edition has a theme and features different performing artists.
