Coast Contemporary 2018: The Next ‘Invasive’ Is ‘Native’
Charles Aubin, Cooking Sections (Daniel Fernández Pascual + Alon Schwabe), Kristoffer Dolmen (Sami Center of Contemporary Art), Tone Hansen (Henie Onstad Kunstsenter)

Thursday 25 October 20.00


Join us for the Norwegian launch of The Empire Remains Shop (Columbia Books on Architecture and the City, 2018), the first book from Cooking Sections (Daniel Fernández Pascual and Alon Schwabe). The book documents the first iteration of the shop in London, UK 2018 and follows their ongoing research into a postcolonial framework to negotiate the relationships, imaginaries, and economies the UK bears with its former colonies.

The evening will feature an introduction by Coast Contemporary 2018 Curator Charles Aubin and a lecture-performance by Cooking Sections: The Next 'Invasive' Is 'Native' that stems from the publication. It will be followed by a response from Henie Onstad Director Tone Hansen and the Sami Center of Contemporary Art Director Kristoffer Dolmen, giving insight from the perspective of a Norwegian context, and enquiring about the symbolic and political strategies used to establish a national narrative through food habits and culinary traditions.
