Interdisciplinary designer
with Northen roots


I once heard that to understand mankind you have to at first understand its bread story.

With that in mind, during the decolonization project, I designed a live interactive performance using 1 table, 45 eaters, 45 pieces of fresh bread, 45 stories, 45 listeners, and 1 recipe to encourage this understanding process.

October 2021, Maastricht

What does it say if a nation eats bread just on very rare occasions?
Or that they eat bread without a crust?
Or that the bread recipe hasn't changed throughout years and has been kept in very big secrecy?
Or that the meal doesn’t even count if there isn’t bread involved?

I believe that the answers to our national identities can be found in very simple questions like these.
We just have to learn how to listen better.

What's your Bread story?
What stories can Bread bring to the table?
What can your Bread tell about you?
