Food Politics and Cultures Festival

My second piece of food-related art… I made a series of photographs called “ORIGINAL EATING UTENSILS” for Food Cultures & Politics Festival at the District Six Museum Homecoming Centre in Cape Town, South Africa.

The festival was created by the Food Cultures & Politics Project which focuses on human relationships to food. Their work aims to understand what food means to various groups and how its preparation can be ritualized; how food is represented and understood in changing cultural configurations and social exchanges; and social and ideological struggles around the meanings, control over and access to food. By focusing primarily on food cultures and politics in South Africa, this project seeks to strengthen analysis of food, society and culture in the global South and the global North.
