What about you? The Potato Lab needs you! On June 9th from 3pm to 9pm we will present the intervention in Ebertplatz in Köln.

  • (How) did the war in Ukraine change the way you look at Europe?Do you feel privileged?
  • How does this influence your connection to others?Where do you see a lack of solidarity in your everyday life – or more generally in Europe?
  • Do you remember a situation where you felt connected to another person through food? Do you have a specific feeling for a specific food?
  • What is the main challenge Europe is facing?

Come and join to explore and discuss these and more questions with other guests at The Potato Lab. Please join the urban intervention by a team of KISD and ENSCI Les Ateliers on Ebertplatz – and we want to know your position/statement in relation to Europe. Do you feel dis/re/connected? Project intervention starts at 3pm, french fries will be offered when you participate.
