After more than 10 years of running the international residency programme Residence Botkyrka in Fittja, Botkyrka Konsthall is gathering an archive of temporal artistic processes holding traces and memories that weaves the history of Residence Botkyrka. The purpose is to make the history accessible for the neighbours, audiences, and future residence artists who are interested in engaging with and building upon the ideas that have accumulated over the years. It also brings an opportunity to reflect on the future as a community.

Merve Gül Özokcu (Turkey)
Women Narrative Spaces builds on oral histories and memories in connection to the everyday practices of cooking and eating, and how these are translated into new spaces for collectivity and solidarity. Starting with the story about her grandmother, Merve is shedding light on knowledges and social aspects that are formed in the kitchen and passed on through the generations.

The food we eat, the songs we sing, the clothes we wear, the things we have around us, our knowledge, dreams and experiences, all these aspects of our lives are integral to our identities as individuals and as a society. Fittja Open 2011 gathered a number of artists that had spent time in Fittja through the residency programme, researching, engaging with the community and producing process-oriented works.

The Fittja Kitchen Cookbook

The Fittja Kitchen Cookbook

The Fittja Kitchen Cookbook is a living archive bringing together artistic practices that have emerged out of an interdisciplinary field of food, gardening, and a neighbourhood.

The first edition highlights practices and ideas that have grown out of an apartment kitchen and into the public space and become an integral part of Botkyrka konsthall in Fittja. It gathers recipes, interviews and reflections on cooking and hosting, as well as growing food to be shared together. It will also gather a broad selection of recipes and food stories from artists and neighbours, as well as documentation on key events that frame the practice around the kitchen.
