Tickets £12 Booking essential

Join an evening of talks hosted by Turner Prize-nominated Cooking Sections, with experts in sustainable food production, including seaweed, heritage grains and foraging. You will also have the opportunity to taste CLIMAVORE dishes and produce.

BALTIC is partnering with Cooking Sections (Daniel Fernández Pascual & Alon Schwabe) as part of the duo’s Turner Prize exhibition in Coventry. The collective will support a long-term process to help transform the food offered at cultural institutions across the UK into a menu that helps address the climate emergency.

This event will take place in BALTIC River Terrace and will bring together the following speakers:

Cooking Sections examines the 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 London in 2013 by Daniel Fernández Pascual and Alon Schwabe, their practice uses food as a lens and tool to observe landscapes in transformation. They have worked on multiple iterations of the long-term site-responsive CLIMAVORE project since 2015, exploring how to eat as humans change climates. Their work has been exhibited at Tate Britain; Serpentine Galleries; SALT Beyoğlu, Istanbul; 12th Taipei Biennial; 58th Venice Biennale; the U.S. Pavilion at the 2014 Venice Architecture Biennale amongst others. They lead a studio unit at the Royal College of Art, London. Cooking Sections are nominated for the 2021 Turner Prize.
