Carolyn Steel



What is a Good Life?

For British architect, Carolyn Steel, the question of how we want to eat in the future is really a question of how we want to live. Food has become invisible in our cities, but it hasn’t always been and doesn’t have to remain this way. Using food as a lens, she takes us on a journey to understand the myriad ways in which food has shaped the cities and societies we live in, and how, in accepting the true value of food, we do away with the illusion of “cheap food” and play an active role in the food system.

This talk is part of the MAD Monday event on cities, soil, and the true value of food in Copenhagen on October 31, 2019. Typically convening on Mondays, the traditional day of rest for restaurants, MAD Monday is a conversation series that tackles the issues that matter most in food, inviting anyone interested in food and hospitality to gather, expand their thinking, and discuss issues of relevance.
