fanfare introduces its first residency at M4gastatelier by inviting The Soft Protest, Digest to work from M4gastatelier and simultaneously take over the fanfare space.
The Soft Protest, Digest is a research collective involving Danish farmer and artist Nickie Sigurdsson and French design duo Adel Cersaque. Centring its research around food history, agriculture and the social and political ties to what constitutes a food culture, the collective aims to design environmentally resilient diets.
The Soft Protest, Digest believes in the usage of storytelling as a way to create or adapt food traditions, recipes, and diets which would take into account the cultural heritage and emotional bond between the eater and his local gastronomy.
Engaging with the community through eventful meals, workshops and talks, the collective seeks to encompass the knowledge and resources of the actors in the production of a vernacular food culture in order to design consistent alternatives.
