HANDHANDPICKED BY – BAKING, SPROUTS & ELDERFLOWERS

28.9.–7.10.2018

HANDHANDPICKED BY examines the possibilities of urban food production on the Festival Headquarters grounds at the former Sophienspital. As a reaction to the location’s plant life, the project explains in an installative setting the significance and production of urban nutrition and researches unexploited food potential, thereby making related cycles visible. Concrete results can be sampled on site immediately: Everything harvested from the market garden there will be made into seasonal products, and a sourdough culture produced with local bacteria will be used to bake festival bread. It could hardly be more local!
