Baking Futures addresses the value of communal, practical doing within both professional practice and private everyday life. It combines the collective construction of a clay fire baking oven with the experience of preparing a simple meal from primary materials, centered around some “real” sourdough. The clay construction and food preparation are conducted in a slow, conscious and performative way alongside conversations around everyday rituals and practices.

As an open construction site and food laboratory taking place parallel to the Making Futures School, part of Bauhaus+ action research project by Universität der Künste Berlin and raumlabor, the clay and dough lab invites participants to take constructive breaks to help and learn, share and relax, digest and ferment.

The fireplace has been at the centre of communication and exchange ever since humans first started gathering, cooking and sharing food around it. Yet nowadays, it has been widely abandoned, hidden or transformed within fast-paced contemporary lifestyles. Beyond the primary functions of feeding hungry stomachs and providing heat, its value ranges from the ability to connect people and support constructive dialogue, to providing a sensual and archaic experience of material transformation.

Today, such values are substituted by global and industrial market offering, obscuring ones more basic needs such as simple and healthy nutrition behind artificially planted cravings which continuously change alongside global trends. Bread constitutes a basic but diversified staple of most culture’s culinary traditions but is today one of the most underrated and exploited products on the market.

As reaction, we will perform a daily, communal ritual feeding of a sour dough as a gesture of daily appreciation, care and recreation, both physically and mentally. Habits of daily provision, preparation and consumption of food leading to investigations about general productive and consumptive behavior will be discussed in an experimental and open way. By conducting simple and slow steps in a performative way we want to unfold their inherent potential and activate the social fireplace in the middle of Berlin’s commercial City centre.

As a result, alongside different forms of material and immaterial creations during the process, the bread oven will be used for a ceremonial inauguration, feeding participants and friends with various breads each with their own stories and experiences.

Cooking in clay
The project FireKitchen came back to Brazil for a research trip and a participatory experimentation process on invitation by Goethe na Vila, a residency program by Goethe Institut SP. It took place inside the temporary cultural center Vila Itororó in São Paulo – the place of origin of the project: about three years ago during the first workshop at this place, I asked one participant, Reni from Bahia if he could cook the traditional Brazilian recipe ‘Moqueca de Peixe’ with us, which i love and used to prepare for many years. He decidedly refused to cook it, wich i understood only when he came back the next week with a large, black ‚panela de barro‘ (clay pot) and fish caught by his father who is a fisherman at the sea. These handmade and low burned clay pots are traditionally used for cooking fish dishes in the costal areas of Brazil.
This little story demonstrates one of the basic assumptions of FireKitchen: a good moqueca cannot be prepared without the right pot!
We are interested in understanding the relationship between the object and the recipe used to prepare a specific dish as well as the people involved in the preparation and the cultural environment providing the ingredients. FireKitchen tries to investigate these topics by an applied research and experimentation process.

Panela de Barro
The research trip through the central costal area of Brazil brought us to the APG (Associação das Paneleiras de Goiabeiras in Vitória, Espirito Santo), the known traditional manufacturing place of the „panela” in barro negro technique. Apart from other strong, beautiful and extreme impressions the country, its diversity of nature, people and cultures gave us, one of the most significant discoveries was the simplicity in which barro negro pots are produced and their strong local footage.
The clay is dug in the middle of a tropical mango forest inside a natural park. A nearby mediterranean mangrove forest is delivering the tannin necessary for blackening the pots. Both are connected to the association hall by a small brackwater river, crossed by simple long wooden boats. About 20 women are producing their panelas here independently, sharing inventory for production. Few tools are used for shaping the panelas, such as a piece of coconut shell for shaping and a river stone for polishing. At the fire place on the other side of the street the necessary temperature of 800°C for burning the sundried panelas is reached in short time through the continuous firing of discarded wood. When they reach this temperature, the panelas are picked with long sticks and sealed with the tannin liquid. This treatment evokes a chemical process inside the clay and gives them the typical black surface suitable for cooking.

Vila Itororó
Back in São Paulo, the experimental workshop took place at the temporary cultural center „canteiro aberto“ of Vila Itororó in the neighborhood of Bixiga. The history of the quarter is strongly influenced by togetherness and coexistence of different cultural backgrounds. Therefore a diversity of people with different knowledge, age, skills and interests were invited to take part.
The workshop was organized around 4 topics structuring the collective creation of a functioning kitchen: Drinking, Cooking, Stove and Shelter.
After extracting possible functions from traditional appliances and looking at the material logic of low burned clay, a collective goal was developed for each topic:
A recombinable system for serving, cooling and filtering water as well as preparing coffee or tee was developed.
Different cooking devices reinterpreted the specific characteristics of cooking in traditional clay pots such as the Moroccan Tajine which creates a steam atmosphere during the cooking process.
The pots were complemented each with a stove for cooking on wood fire after discussing various aspects like sustainability, efficiency, health, tradition etc.
Additionally, a simple narrow roof was constructed and covered with clay tiles, quoting the iconic roof portal as a symbolic invitation to guests.
During a 2 day process, all pieces were kilned in several different fire burnings on the basis of traditional techniques: a paper oven, a bucket oven, a pit fire, reduction burning etc.
Finally all participants and friends came back activating the commonly built kitchen, cooking, sharing and exchanging experiences and recipes during a 3-day feast.

Objects and Processes
Through a phenomenological research and related experimentation as a methodology, we are able to experience an exemplary production process from raw material to a usable kitchen:
from digging the clay, shaping of a complementary set of functional objects, burning them in wood fire with different techniques in order to obtain varying surfaces and material qualities, to finally testing them in the actual context. As this process is rather low complex, it can be repeated and understood without extensive knowledge or access. The sensual and archaic moments of putting the hands into the mud and setting a pit on fire are able to free the access to spontaneous acting, implicit knowledge and personal intuition.
The fireplace constitutes the center of communication, exchange and cultural production by its capacity of processing food and other materials.

Vernacular Intelligence
Different types of clay pots can be found in all cultures around the world, well distinguished in their construction, function and use following to local appearances of materials and ingredients. This contextual sensibility results in sophisticated shapes refined for the preparation of ecologically reasonable and often well balanced recipes. Observing, understanding and learning from this vernacular intelligence, we are able to profit from an existing multitude of elaborate objects. Those can still be found in several places where a unique knowledge of production is passed on from generation to generation. In the uniform canon of industrially shaped product culture, we often loose this diversity as a reasonable connection to meaning and origins of dishes and utilities. Its specifically those qualities that we are interested in and want to foster and share through our work.

FIRE-KITCHEN is an exemplary process in which raw materials, food ingredients and clay, will be transformed into a usable kitchen unit and fully set dinner table. It proposes an action that happens in public and is open to participation: pots, fire stoves and tableware will be formed from clay and baked in a wood fire, obtaining a black, matte surface through reduction and oxidation. A feast will be prepared, food cooked with the recipes from all participants and shared around the table during the opening.

Through hands-on work and sensual contact with the raw clay as well as the archaic experience of cooking on fire, the understanding and accessibility of the complete production process is increasing, while the process itself is reduced in its complexity. The project wants to raise our curiosity for the processes behind the things and how they are all interconnected: raw materials, labour, economic factors and resulting prices are often  incomprehensible. The production conditions of low quality mass-produced 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 that has the typical black coloured surface after being baked in open fire. The oxidation resulting from reduction burning allows the pots to breathe while being more dense. 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 Roemertopf etc.

The project FIRE-KITCHEN was realized in cooperation with the Austrian Caritas group Kompa and invited refugees from different countries (Syria, Lebanon, Afghanistan, Iran) and neighbours to participate in a 10 day action in an enchanted backyard garden in the center of Vienna: starting from a selected recipe a cooking pot and a table stove were designed and built from clay. Throughout the 10 days, several cooking pots, steamers, tajines, open baking pans and closed ovens, coffee and tea pots and jugs were created, burned in wood fire and used for cooking.

The project Fire-Kitchen took place in the framework of the Vienna Design Week 2016 Stadtarbeit Format.
It received the MehrWERT-Designpreis 2016 for social design of Erste Bank Austria.

Designed in the early twentieth century by portuguese immigrant Francisco de Castro, the village is a witness of the change of Sao Paulo. To reform it implies not only technical and architectural challenges, but also a public debate about the different conceptions of the city. Reform is here understood broadly: what to restore? How? For which uses?
Without an original plan, Vila Itororo incorporated existing homes, used materials of demolished buildings, took advantage of colonial and modern elements and grew through ‚‘ puxadinhos ‚‘.
Over the decades, about 300 people lived in the village and between 2006 and 2013, inhabitants resisted against the expropriation of the area, and won the right to stay in three buildings in the central region.
Throughout the restauration process we do not intend to return to a distant past or extricate itself of recent events; It is developed with the intention of working on the history of the site. This challenge is being put to all who wish to live, in the various forms, in the Vila Itororó. The structures presented are fruits of this necessity and structure the temporary cultural center at the construction site – a result of the collaborative workshop organized by ConstructLab, a group specializing in collective and temporary buildings.

As part of the ConstructLab, a collective workshop, construction and activation, i contributed the workshop for furniture and textile – flags.

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.

As a primordial central place of creative production and communication, Johanna Dehio proposes the imaginary model of a fireplace, serving both as origin and nutrition for the experimental and interactive developement and as a workshop for the ideation of further projects.
To be able to bring live to the old masters houses and to make them useful mainly asks for the installation of a mutual exchange. The installation of the CONSTRUISINE (= workshop + fireplace) stands as a first step, where – as in every kitchen – matter is brought in and processed and developed using various tecniques. Thereby both, nutrition and construction materials as theoretical input are equally seen as matter. Throughout the process all this is beeing investigated, discussed and experimentally tested on possible appliances.

It is a main goal of the project, to stimulate an active communication through an invitation to common building and cooking, using and eating. Meanwhile central themes of the historic Bauhaus, such as craft manufactiure vs. industrial production can be discussed and referenced with actual streams like lokal production and social involvement. Further, the possibilities of arguing and treating the cultural heritage between museum context and real actual and located needs can be discussed.
Possible products can range from researches, projects, design developements to situations or recepies all asking for a playful interaction and communikation between people, object, space and surrounding.

Every creative process is asking for the definition of a framework and the set up of a specific working situation as a first step. The basic set up of the CONSTRUISINE consists of a mobile workshop- and cooking situation. All parts have incorporated a certain function such as the manufacturing of simple pieces of furniture using simple connection methods or the cooking of simple recipies that are doable for everyone.

Based on a study of different aspects of improvisation which are consistently serving as an impulse and inspiration for Johannas work, she is concerned with the substance of relationships between the user and the object which implicates a responsibility for the things.
She creates objects that are characterized on a functional level by open and accessible structures that provoke interaction. On an artistic level the inspiration through improvisation leads to a form-language that combines various materials and surfaces with a plain and clear design.
She is currently researching the fireplace as a referencial model for creative process both on a practical and theoretical level.

On December 7 the old building of the Van Abbemuseum becomes the Museum of Arte Útil, a place where art’s use value and social function will be analysed. Museum of Arte Útil is initiated by the artist Tania Bruguera, developed with the Van Abbemuseum and constructLab and realised by its users.

Arte Útil in Spanish roughly translates as ‘useful art’ but it goes further suggesting art as a tool or device. The Museum of Arte Útil will present an archive spanning nearly two centuries. These case studies imagine, create and implement beneficial outcomes by producing tactics that change how we act in society. Some of the case studies will be activated by users of the museum, whilst others will be analysed and debated.

How do we ‘use’ the museum? How can it become a site of production, and output? Through this project the museum aims to transform the museum, with a fixed set of attributes, into a Social Power Plant. At the project’s core is the Arte Útil archive, which tracks a significant and growing development in artistic practice. This archive provides the fuel for the Social Power Plant where it can be activated through use, analysis and debate.

As part of the ConstructLab, a collective construction and activation Moment, i realised together with the other members the design, developement and construction of the Museum scenography and furniture.

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.

The furniture and objects arise from an observation of the main two characteristica percieved in Cova do Vapor: the ongoing project, a free place for people from the village and from abroad for meeting, discussing, projecting, producing and simply being on the one side and the strong impression of nature and the low complex cultural structures of the village on the other side.

The objects aim to create a relationship between the people, between people and objects and between objects and the place in various ways. Formally, the objects are all based on the graphic sign, the V. A and the Sardinha (><> <><).

Two big sculptural sardinhas for one or many people to sit or lie on are swimming in the sand dune towards the sea, the third sardinha turning into a see-saw for children to play on.

A swarm of little stools inviting to playfully form a circle or other shapes and signs and representing as much as serving to a group of people always in interaction with each other.

The wooden shoes that are made for walking in the sand and traditionally used by fishermen – in the shape of a sardinha, leaving the sign in the sand – as a proposal for a small series production involving the people.

And finally the three dimensional flying sardinha, simply relating to this phantastic position with the feet in the sand at the coast in the wind, this place that offers the best sardinhas in the world!

Furniture and products designed and produced together with inhabitants and project members during a ConstructLab at Casa do Vapor in the framework of Lisbon Triennale 2013.

The „work-show“ at the window gallery, curated by VIENNA DESIGN WEEK, shows studio and production prototypes that deliver insight into the work of Berlin based designer Johanna Dehio.

„Assemblage“ introduces themes that Johanna Dehio engages with in her work: based on a study of different aspects of improvisation which are consistently serving as an impulse and inspiration for her work, she is concerned with the substance of relationships between the user and the object which implicates a responsibility for the things.

She creates objects that are characterized on a functional level by open and accessible structures that provoke interaction. On an artistic level the inspiration through improvisation leads to a form-language that combines various materials and surfaces with a plain and clear design.

During the artist residency in Vienna in autumn 2012, Johanna Dehio invited the public to participate in her research project „Furniture – Improvisation“. Starting from a setup of possible materials and processes, the furniture for the evening event was created conjointly.

The basic idea of the project was to confront people with the loss of their relationship with the objects they are surrounded with and thereby giving an impuls to rethink consumtion behaviour – by being part of the production process.

The setup of the gallery was made of deliberately pre-cut pieces of reused wooden sheets coming from former installations or art pieces of the museum, adding up to a mix of various shapes, surfaces and colours. People were invited and encouraged to find pieces they personally like and to combine them with the given techniques to create their own piece of furniture.

“from makeshift solutions to product development”

Love them or hate them: one encounters makeshift solutions everywhere!

In her diploma thesis, Johanna Dehio questions what might be the unique beauty in makeshift objects; and furthermore, what could be learned from them for her own product development and adopted from their specific charm.

The project was based on a research and analysis of terms which apply to the use of makeshifts and their development, such as: improvisation, perfection and imperfection, and the esthetic of the imperfect, participation, play…
Readiness to improvise and an open-minded approach are important preconditions in her design method. The outset is the approach: honing the perception of the positive aspects of spontaneously created solutions and recognising their beauty. The result is a series of drafts describing a feeling of openness and ease.

The ‘Hockerbank’ ( = stool-bench) is inspired by makeshift seating. The series consists of several stools, which are supplemented by a plank with round cut-outs; and round tables, which can be transformed, in the same manner, into a long table.

The “Kleiderstiele” ( = clothing-sticks) constitute a simple form of coat rack: clothing is hung upon hooks located at the end of long rods which are, without any mounting, leaned against the wall.

The “Drahtbank”( = wire-bench) consists of metal frames of a stool, a chair and a table which are completed by the user combining them with one’ s preferred material; planks, boards, old wooden panels… The bench allows for many variations and asks for the user’s involvement.

Also inspired by makeshift situations, the “Wandwinkel”( = wall-angles), composed a sideboard and mirror, require only the correct inclination and the support of a wall.

Johanna Dehio was born in Munich and currently lives and works in Berlin. She studied product design at the University of Applied Sciences in Potsdam and the University of Arts in Berlin. Along the way she realised cultural projects and exhibitions in Berlin and Milan. She also gained practical experience working for Jerszy Seymour in Berlin and Richard Hutton in Rotterdam.
