Eatable Drawings and Poems – Essbare Gedichte und Zeichnungen. From 1994 to 1998, the artist also intensly worked on eatable drawings and poems. They are written and drawn with eatable ink on waver paper and than vacuum packed. Kirschner organised and participated in readings in which he ate his poems after he read them. For the performance, eating always costed more time then reading them. In 1996 he drew and wrote a 30-person menu for a dinner performance and opening of his exhibition in a gallery at the Galeriehaus Hamburg. There Kirschner worked as a waiter and served the eatable artwork for dinner. The same year he showed his work at the Kunstverein Bremerhaven, Kunsthalle.
