Dialogues about the Home

Recording of the first session of "Space and Food: Table, Home, Market" debates

[Spanish | 02:02:32]

Eat at home or eat out? The city and the home switch roles and are often confused. In fact, the home no longer has a single kitchen but, potentially, many more: as many as the food delivery system allows. This situation changes the usual characteristics of the domestic environment, which now partly mingles with the city and its restaurants. The kitchen and dining spaces of the home have had a central role in western culture. The system of socioeconomic relations and perceptions of food in contemporary times have brought changes in this notion of centrality which, to some extent, now belongs to the past. However, food has not lost its ability to domesticate space and transform the landscape.
