Creative takes on domesticity and cooking from the constraints of lockdown
As the coronavirus forced the world to close down, nearly everyone found themselves spending a lot more time at home than they had initially anticipated. With most 2020 plans foiled and travel restrictions on the rise, many artists turned to kitchen experiments as a new creative outlet.
In Recipes for the Future, 16 culture-makers share the culinary concoctions they made in reaction to their newly disrupted lifestyles, revealing a vision for the future based around the ambition to change and to widen the limits of human imagination. The visions and recipes of these writers, academics, philosophers, singers, visual artists, theater-makers and designers working in the Netherlands and Germany paint a unique portrait of our current moment.
Themes of sustainability, domesticity, utopian realities and the role of cultural institutions arise in between recipes for “corona ice cream” and “mushrooms at the end of the world.”
