Garlic is historically tied to Jewish culture as a symbol of celebration and good health. Garlic is also bound to anti-Semitic propaganda within the concept of foetor Judaicus—‘Jewish stink’. In Shum Klum Casey Carsel explores Jewishness and garlic, from the sweetness of tradition to the stench of hatred, and considers the allium’s journey from an everyday marker of Jewishness to nothing at all.
In conjunction with Shum Klum, RM Gallery has commissioned Garlic and a whole lot of lovin’: a new text by Quishile Charan.

Casey’s text Allium Olere (garlic scent), is available for download here.
