apple pie (2021)

This Dutch Design Week we (Noa Jansma, Polly Moss and I) looked at the Dutch so-called National pastry; the apple pie.

How do we reflect upon our unsettling history? How is the apple pie perceived in different cultures, and what are the hidden stories connected to it? How come every family has the ‘best’ recipe and why are many so protective about it?

We use the kitchen to engage in performative dialogue, centred around baking and sharing of recipes. With cooking situated in art and design contexts they unpack food systems in all its complexity, its stories, logistics and cultural values.
