Climavore: What Is Above Is What Is BelowDaniel Fernández Pascual and Alon Schwabe in conversation with Katja Jug and Jennifer Rodenhouse

Climavore is a long-term project initiated by Cooking Sections in 2015. It sets out to envision seasons of food production and consumption that react to climatic events. Different from the now obsolete cycle of spring, summer, autumn, and winter, Climavore rethinks the construction of space and infrastructure by focusing on how climatic alterations offer a new set of clues to adapt our diet to them. This lecture will explore different iterations of the ongoing project situating them within a larger body of work on the remains of Empire and postcolonial structures that have dictated the architecture of landscapes of food production and consumption. Looking at recent work, the different projects will look at the relationships between human and more-than-human species, as well as the political construction of water scarcity.
