Politics of Food
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
and community. [publisher's note]
