Book launch "The Empire Remains Shop"

Join us for the Paris launch of The Empire Remains Shop (Columbia Books on Architecture and the City, 2018), Cooking Sections first book following the eponymous ongoing research and installation that offered a postcolonial framework to negotiate the relationships, imaginaries, and economies the United Kingdom bears with its former colonies.
The evening will feature an introduction by Lafayette Anticipations Associate Curator Charles Aubin and a response to the book by curator and scholar Claire Tancons, from the perspective of a French context. Cooking Sections (Daniel Fernández Pascual and Alon Schwabe) will also present their lecture-performance The Next 'Invasive' Is 'Native'. A Q&A with the audience will close the event.

The “Empire shops” were first developed in London in the 1920s to teach the British to consume foodstuffs from the colonies and overseas territories. The Empire Remains Shop, conceived by Cooking Sections, speculates on the possibility and implications of selling the remains of the British Empire in London today. It lays out some of the landscapes, imaginaries, and economies, that future iterations of the shop would need to address in order to think through political counter-structures for a better distributed, hyper-globalized world.

The event will take place in English.
Free admission.
