New National Dish: Norway is where experts and eaters convene to imagine, taste and debate the possibility of a new national dish for a climate-changed Norway.
As we approach the 10 year anniversary of Sylvi Listhaug’s campaign for a New National Dish for Norway, one artwork asks “what should the National Dish(es) for Norway be in 2023 and beyond?” The artwork re-enacts the peculiar campaign to crown a New National Dish via public survey and includes one artist’s personal reflection on food and belonging.
How should we imagine, taste and debate a range of food futures and food cultures for a climate-changed Norway? Do we need a national dish at all and what about the possibility of a NorVegan National Dish?
