MOBILE SOILS DINNERS - GROUND
This series of three dinners is a collaboration between arvae, Manon Briod & Mathieu Pochon, foodculture days, TETI Group and SAE Greenhouse Lab. Together, we unfold the three chapters of the publication “Mobile Soils” by TETI Press: investigating the mineral and rooted discussions of the underground, looking at the layered and planted conversations on the ground, and finally exploring the circulating patterns across the overground.
“Ground”, the second dinner in the series, explores the dynamics of “giving and taking”, “production and consumption”, “human beings and machines”, “linear and circular”, addressing food and agricultural practices and through scientific and socio-political questions. How to turn the relations of a greenhouse into a social, educational and cultural space for interpersonal relations, embodied gestures and non-production? How does soil nurture or feed us - and what do these processes look like?
We understand soil as a body of knowledge, containing many (hi)stories. This dinner is a sensory exploration and haptic experience - we invite you to taste the research, listen to the food, smell the sounds.
