DermaBread Participatory Performance

Kaisu Koski

This participatory performance offers surgical and anatomical training through the experience of tasting. The participants will engage with sensory skills acquisition, simulation, and the relationship between (non)human animal bodies and food through the experimental simulator DermaBread. DermaBread simulates the anatomy of the skin and various kinds of skin conditions. The 45-minute performance is led by Kaisu Koski and Noémie Soula, the developers of DermaBread and members of the Citizen Surgery Collective.
