Established in London in 2013 by Daniel Fernández Pascual and Alon Schwabe, Cooking Sections examines the systems that organise the world through food. Using site-responsive installation, performance and video, they explore the overlapping boundaries between art, architecture, ecology and geopolitics. They have worked on multiple iterations of the long-term site-responsive CLIMAVORE project since 2015, exploring how to eat as humans change climates. Their work has been exhibited at Tate Britain and Serpentine Galleries, among many others. They are part of British Art Show 9, lead a studio unit at the Royal College of Art, London, and were guest professors at the Academy of Fine Arts, Munich. Among other awards, Cooking Sections were nominated for the Turner Prize in 2021.
