Brennpunkt substanz goes international

Deutsche Version

substanz goes international: from Pittsburgh to Japan, from Berlin to Slovenia. The editorial team show just how international the FHS St.Gallen is, highlighting the global network of partner universities,the collaboration in teaching and the exchanges in the area of research – and they also visit a student flatshare. For the picture series, the St.Gallen artist Marco Kamber, who lives in Amsterdam, immersed himself in the topic of soup cooking. Soup is a symbol of internationalisation: practically every country has its own recipe or has adapted those of other nations. Soups convey countless stories –Marco came across many exciting anecdotes during his research, which he tells us about in the interview. He also reveals which recipes he tried out himself.
