This publication critically assesses and illuminates ways in which the
arts can confront food-related
issues, through the contributions of artists, anthropologists, activists,
agronomists, and chefs.
The last decade has witnessed a proliferation of artists and artist
collectives interrogating the global politics and ethics of food
production, distribution, and consumption.
As an important document of new research and thinking around the subject,
this book, co-published with Delfina Foundation, contains reflections on
food by prominent artists, anthropologists, and activists, among others.
Interviews with chefs, policy makers, and agronomists critically assess
and illuminate the ways the arts confront food-related issues, ranging
from the infrastructure of global and local food systems, its
impact on social organization, alternatives and sustainability, climate
and ecology, health and
policy, science and
biodiversity, and identity
