“Mock Soup,” “Red Beans and Ricely Yours” and “Bastard Borsch”: this group tackles questions of planetary habitability through culinary cooperation. The simple question of to what extent different recipes may or may not successfully combine into one opens up space to discuss a seemingly unsolvable problem: How can we foster effective planetary collaboration despite differences, antagonisms and unequal historical responsibilities?

About “What is the Planetary?”

What concepts of the world underlie political and social approaches to a transforming Earth system? How can a variety of worldviews be transformed into shared planetary-scale practices that could address the current challenges?
Where is the Planetary? is a collective search for models of living together on Earth. Following five central questions, researchers, artists, and activists seek ways to transform the multitude of perspectives and cosmologies into a common agency.
