Sandwich Utopia at NAI Rotterdam

22nd of July 2012  – Rotterdam

Sandwich, as we understand it nowadays, was named in the 18th century, after the 4th Earl of Sandwich, a historic town on the River Stour, at the south east coast of England. Sandwich comes from Sandwic, and literally means “sand village,” “sandy place,” or “place on the sand.” For the Summer program of NAI, Spaghetti Forever organized a Sandwich Utopia workshop in which the participants could design and build an utopic urban environment using food products and ingredients normally used for a sandwich in a normal Dutch lunch, during the whole day. The result of the workshop was fabulous and colourful and was soon after eaten by the public.

Spaghetti Forever | Sandwich Utopia was hosted by Giuseppe Licari, de Bende and NAI Rotterdam 2012.
