We are happy and proud to announce that, on November 26, 2016, Sonja completed her dissertation on “Food Design – Motivation in the Construction und Shaping of Food” at the faculty for Interdisciplinary Research and Further Education at the Alpen Adria University Klagenfurt. This academic work is an important step for us, as it mirrors our idea of how research, design, and art are to be combined.
In the summer semester 2017 we will be guest professors at the New Design University in St. Pölten. Together with the students we will experimentally explore the topic “food SUSTAINABLE design” and will gauge, or even cross, the borders of product and industrial design.
Together with Nofrontiere Design we are developing a unique food-exhibition project, with the working title „food VALUE“, for the castles Hof and Niederweiden, both of which are not far from Vienna. Three big exhibitions, in 2018, 2019, and 2020, will deal with political, social, cultural, and sustainable aspects of one of our most important and meaningful rituals: EATING
For Valetta/ Malta, the European cultural capital 2018, we are working on a performance project on the value shift concerning eating and sustainability. A further project that focuses on value shifts in regards to Sustainable Design is an exhibition which we are currently creating for the “Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe” Hamburg.
Together with our photographers Ulrike Köb and Daisuke Akita we are working on our next book project: CLEANING. Once again we are dedicating ourselves to an everyday activity; we are thematising rituals, traditions, and conventions around design objects that go completely unnoticed. On the basis of the private, almost intimate, cleaning process we disclose social and political questions around equality, work migration, ecology and modern slavery.
