Planetary Protocols: Cooking Sections (Daniel Fernández Pascual and Alon Schwabe)/ The Empire Remains Shop

Cooking Sections (Daniel Fernández Pascual and Alon Schwabe): The Empire Remains Shop / Response by Lisa Enzenhofer

Cooking Sections (Daniel Fernández Pascual & Alon Schwabe) is a duo of spatial practitioners based out of London. It was born to explore the systems that organize the world through food. Using installation, performance, mapping and video, their research-based practice explores the overlapping boundaries between visual arts, architecture and geopolitics. They currently lead a studio unit at the Royal College of Art, London. In 2016 they opened The Empire Remains Shop.

Empire Shops were first developed in London in the 1920s to teach the British how to consume foodstuffs from the colonies and overseas territories. Although none of the stores ever opened, they intended to make foods such as sultanas from Australia, oranges from Palestine, cloves from Zanzibar, and rum from Jamaica available and familiar in the British Isles. The Empire Remains Shop, a public installation that opened in 2016, speculates on the possibility and implications of selling back the remains of the British Empire in London today. The Empire Remains Shop works as a platform to investigate and explore postcolonial spatial implications behind the ‘exotic’ and the ‘tropical’, conflict geologies, the financialisation of ecosystems, ‘unnatural’ behaviours, the ecological perception of ‘invasive’ and ‘native’ species, the architecture of retiring to former colonies, or the construction of the offshore and Special Economic Zones.

Planetary Protocols is a cross-disciplinary series of talks at ArkDes in Stockholm that brings together international thinkers and practitioners to present their work and perspectives on architecture, design, identity, and statehood. This event was In collaboration with KTH School of Architecture.
