For POWER NIGHTS, Cooking Sections will develop a bread recipe in collaboration with local regenerative farming initiatives in Brandenburg, which will be freely available from March 2022 for visitors to POWER NIGHTS: Being Mothers to enjoy at E-WERK’s low carbon outdoor bar and kitchen, TRAFO. In May 2022 Cooking Sections will present a new performative lecture, examining the systems that organise the world through food.

About Cooking Sections

Cooking Sections is a London-based duo examining those systems that organise the world through food. Using site-responsive installation, performance and video, they explore the overlapping boundaries between art, architecture, ecology and geopolitics. Established in 2013 by Daniel Fernández Pascual and Alon Schwabe, their practice uses food as a lens and tool to observe landscapes in transformation.
