Carolyn Steel & Brigitte van der Sande [GB]
Carolyn Steel follows the trail of our food, from countryside to city, via markets and supermarkets, kitchens and dining rooms, waste disposal and back. She asks herself how we can use food more effectively to better understand our cities, to improve their design, and to make them into more pleasant places to live. She sketches a clear picture of how modern food production impacts our planet and our lives, offering insights into how things were allowed to get this far, and suggesting where we should go from here.
Carolyn Steel will present her work and join a conversation with Brigitte van der Sande.
