Conflict Kitchen was a restaurant in Pittsburgh, PA, that cooked and served food from countries the United States was in conflict with. It was founded by Jon Rubin – an art professor at Carnegie Mellon University – and Dawn Weleski. They provided a space and opportunities for people to learn about and discuss the focus area. This target country changed every 3-5 months. NPR described the restaurant as “an experimental public art project—and the medium is the sandwich wrap.” (https://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=128172025)
Conflict Kitchen closed in 2017 to pursue other opportunities.
Led by Jon Rubin, Dawn Weleski, and Brett Yasko
