Recipes for Utopias: A Culinary Excursion Through A Miscellany of Ideal Worlds 

As part of Utopia School 2016 in Freetown Christiania Recipes for Utopias explored the everyday practicalities of radical realities through a performative dinner that prepared dishes from 13 utopias documented through a cookbook. Created in collaboration with Tim Nicholas, Will Owen and Walker Tufts.

Meals provide a point of friction where global systems intersect with local bodies. Every detail, from how we harvest, grow, care for, and eventually collect the ingredients, to the way we prepare, serve, and attend to a dish as we eat it expresses our beliefs about the world and our relationship to it. What’s for dinner tells us as much, if not more, about a utopia than any other detail.
