SAVE THE DATE: Art Research Conference ‘FOOD FRICTION’ November 30th

In the 2nd edition of the ‘Art Research Conference’ food is the connecting theme. We will explore emerging identities and look for methods to develop them from different art and design perspectives.

FOOD FRICTION concerns fractures and shifts within food production and consumption. In time we have gone through episodes of primitive eating habits to consuming unsustainable ingredients and now we have reached a stage in which the entire food system becomes cluttered. The focus will be on finding ways to change our eating behavior and trade system through artistic research.

Title
