FIRE-KITCHEN

“FIRE-KITCHEN” is a public session, in which an exemplary process will take place, from raw materials, food ingredients and clay, to a ready to use kitchen and fully set dinner table, open for participation: pots, fire stoves and tableware will be formed from clay, baked in a simple wood fire obtaining a black matte surface through reduction and oxidation. A dinner feast with recipes from all participants will be cooked and eaten collectively during the opening.

Through hands on work and sensual contact with raw clay, an experience of the archaic archetype of cooking on open fire, the understanding and accessibility of the complete production process is rising. The project wants to awaken our curiosity for the processes behind the things and how everything is interconnected: raw materials, labour and economic factors and resulting prices are often incomprehensible. The production conditions of low quality massproduced objects reflect the little appreciation and lack of connection with the origin of the objects.

The project is inspired by the brazilian Barro Preto pottery, which is distinguishable for its black color from baking in open fire, allowing them breathe, making them thus able to cook in them. Earthenware baked on open fire can be found in all cultures, such as the moroccan Tajine, the mexican Barro Negro from Oaxaca, turkish Güvec, the japanese Nabe, the german Römertopf etc.

Finally, cooking is an activity, which belongs mostly to the sphere of private life, to the private household. However, public cooking can shape a new concept of the household, a productive unit that is more socially engaged and diffused to its context, deconstructing the modernistic idea of the household as a secluded, private unit of consumption.

The FIRE-KITCHEN takes place during Vienna Design Week 2016 Stadtarbeit Format.
The project will be realized in collaboration with Caritas project Kompa for integration.

FOOD DIALOGUE

deutschland – uruguay | sobremesa mobile

Most friendships starts by sitting together at a table. But what to do, if there is no table or kitchen, and the only
common space is in the middle of the city? In the occasion of 160 years of german – uruguayan friendship,
architects, artists and designers from Montevideo and Berlin come together for a one day workshop in order to
develop mobile cooking constructions.
Eating, drinking and talking will take place the same evening.
The Instituto Cervantes, as a partner, will offer its courtyard as the startpoint of this moving activity also
connecting the new exhibition ‘’Ghierra Intendente’’ with the city.

On a mobile sobremesa, crossing language- and continental borders, towards cultural bondings and friendships!
We invite you all to try the ‘’Empanadas’’ and the construction!

SOUR DOUGH TALKS – MONS DIFFUSION

Bread as a tool for collaboration and exchange

All through the Mons Diffusion week, driven by an interest in the relationship of people to the practical doing, Johanna Dehio organizes a range of exercises and talks revolving around the manual preparation of wood fired sour dough bread.

Through her own experience with making dough for baking bread, Johanna has become aware that it requires a certain amount of time and commitment. Every day, in order to keep the sourdough alive, it needs to be „fed“ it with a certain amount of water and flour. Without this daily attention, the dough can go bad and „die“, in which case you have to start all over. The workshop aims to explore the idea that being involved in the care of something and can have a strong impact on one’s well-being.

Building on her own experience of using collective food preparation as a tool for communication, Johanna invites the members of the Diffusion Workshop to join her one after the other, every day, for feeding the dough and reflecting on their relationship to those moments of practical activity where the brain doesn’t necessarily have to join in. Having the hands in the dough is a special sensual moment of being unfocussed, letting thoughts come free, solving problems unconsciously, almost like sleeping, dreaming, recovering time or meditation. When do we allow these moments to happen? While walking or driving, cooking, or taking care of the laundry? We all have a packed daily life and follow our plans and sometimes forget to give much space for such moments occasionally happening along the way.

Another topic is our consumer relationship to bread, a diet component shared by most people: Where do we buy our bread? Does it make a difference whether the ingredients are local or have gone a few time across Europe before we get them in our hands? How important is the taste? How much work is included in the production, where and by whom? Beyond the topic of bread, the talks tackle the question of food consumption in general and of a healthy relationship to what we eat.

These intimate „Sour-dough Talks“ are supplemented by two moments shared by the group, where food preparation is used as a tool for reflection and communication about the group dynamic. During the first evening, the participants are asked to present themselves through a pizza made from a wide range of ingredients, giving an impression of who they are or how they feel: sweet, spicy, green, red, homogenous, chaotic… After a week of sharing daily life as well as an intense common exploration of what it means to learn and experiment together, the participants are invited to get their hands into the dough and bake again, this time a sourdough bread baked in the wood oven. Choosing the ingredients added to the bread dough and thereby varying on taste, color, size and shape, they try their best to offer to another team member a personal bread that can tell what they have learned about them, how they feel towards them, but also sometimes the untold and the private that can only be speculated on. There is time for reflection and sharing common issues while the workshop fades out into an evening apéritif.

Bent wood furniture Workshop in collaboration with ConstructLab and atelier Bow Wow in the context of the construction of the mainhall of Osthang Campus during the experimental building Summerschool on Mathildenhöhe 2014.

Building together – thinking together – living together was the main theme of the Osthang Campus during the Darmstädter Architecture Summer.

Design, craftsmanship, and material have always been important topics at Mathildenhöhe. We collaborated with one of the world’s most renowned furniture producers on continuing this tradition. In its ‘mobile wood-bending unit’, Thonet was teaching its bentwood production techniques and supporting with construction of the chairs for the main event hall.

One of the strongest Impressions coming across in the old “Meisterhäuser” of historic Bauhaus Dessau is the relation between colour, space and light and the evolving imaginary.

As a part of the „Construisine“ Project, the Klee Stool is one of the results of a three months study about the handling and possible future use of the historic masters houses.

Made from lacquered wood.

 

CONSTRUISINE

Within the framework of Vienna Design Week 2013 ‚Stadtarbeit‘, designers Johanna Dehio and Dominik Hehl initiated a project named CONSTRUISINE.

CONSTRUISINE is an open kitchen / furniture workshop built on a public square in the centre of Vienna. It invites neighbors and passers-by to build furniture and cook food according to suggested recipes and templates. For the designers construction materials and nutrition can be regarded equally as elementary basics for creation.
They are seen as essential components of our daily existence. The practice of building and cooking are similar in their use of tools, measurements and improvisational thinking. CONSTRUISINE interweaves both activities and transforms the Sankt Elisabeth Platz in Vienna into a temporary creative meeting point.

CONSTRUISINE is a public low-cost, consumption-conscious, temporary initiative. All raw materials, both ingredients and construction materials, where obtained through donations from local businesses. The basic set-up consists of working- and kitchen desks, that through their design conduct their users into a self-explanatory production process. Through these tools the designers propose simple food and furniture recipes, based on clever use of recycled materials, that inpsire people to participate and develop their own. Workshops and food are distributed free of charge.

For the construction and maintenance of CONSTRUISINE the designers work closely with a group of youngsters from a local Caritas-program. During opening times designers are present to accompany visitors with cooking and constructing furniture. The program includes children workshops in cooking and furniture building.

Project team: Johanna Dehio, Dominik Hehl, Lukas Heraut, Franziska Lutze, Omar Nazif, Tomasz Polanski, Camille Riboulleau, Alexander Römer, Rieke Vos.
