A Cookbook for Political Imagination accompanies the exhibition at the 2011 Venice Biennale’s Polish Pavilion titled … and Europe will be stunned. The first book from the Jewish Renaissance Movement in Poland is not a traditional exhibition catalog. Instead, it is a manual of political instructions and “recipes”, delivered by more than 40 international authors. Entries range from manifestos, artistic contributions and fiction to elements of visual identity and guidance for members of the movement. It even contains some actual recipes for food. Designed by Guy Saggee from Shual Studio, Tel Aviv with contributions by Gish Amit, Yazid Anani, Ariella Azoulay, Marek Beylin, Achim Borchardt-Hume, Andrea Geyer, Daniel Hendrickson, Rafał Jakubowicz, Wam Kat, Yuval Kremnitzer, Renzo Martens, Oliver Ressler, Sarah Rifky, Lia Perjovschi and others.
