THE COOKERY 11.04—14.04. 2024


What are the lessons to be learnt from 30 years of fablabs – 12 in the case of iMAL’s? Have the fablab and makers movements lived up to their promises?

Between climate issues, people’s emancipation, gender, and colonialism, is it possible to believe in a radical and committed future for the fablab sphere?

To address these questions, we are bringing together Ernesto Oroza, Stephanie Vilayphiou, Adrien Payet & Xavier Klein, each with a singular critical approach to fablabs. In this The Cookery panel, they will engage in an in-depth discussion aiming to question and respond to the challenges and outcomes of the ‘new’ industrial revolution.

The Cookery is an event focused on artistic practices that use technology in an accessible and inclusive way. The Cookery aims to create a safe environment for debate, knowledge exchange, learning by doing-it-yourself and -with-others, and participative performances.

And of course, The Cookery wouldn’t be true to its name without delicious food to share around the table in a relaxed atmosphere!
