In reaction to the social distancing measures imposed during the pandemic and under the motto ‘living together’, with his work Ket Baker, Daniel Wagener invites us to come together to bake bread in a custom-made oven placed in front of the museum. The installation is also an opportunity to engage with the artist and his guests and explore your knowledge of bread, grains and flour, the skills involved in making dough, the art of leaven, how to knead dough, prepare kindling to fire the oven, and baking techniques.

A series of informal exchanges for varied learning experiences in a relaxed environment are organized around the work “Ket Baker” (2021) by Daniel Wagener.
