DANIEL PRAVIT FETHKE
ARTIST + EDUCATOR

I am an interdisciplinary artist and educator based in Brooklyn. I have worked in the New York film industry for over a decade, having screened films and documentaries at festivals, including the Bushwick Film Festival, Atlanta Docufest, and at the CUNY Graduate Center. I regularly facilitate workshops, cooking classes, and creative gatherings that center food and recipes as ways to explore identity and culture.

FREE SOUP FROM ART SCHOOL

A still from a culinary performance outside of the Brooklyn Museum. Part of a series of site-specific food work, I handed out free chicken soup to passers-by in exchange for conversation, asking each participant “What food reminds you of home?” Responses were written on spoons.
