Talk: ‘sustainable | FOOD | art’ at Austrian Culture Forum London, 8th December 2022

I’ve been invited to join a conversation at the Austrian Culture Forum London to accompany their autumn exhibition ‘sustainable | FOOD | art‘ by Austrian art duo Honey & Bunny.

Sonja Stummerer (one half of the duo) will be joined by me and esteemed peers, the curator and writer Catherine Flood who curated the ‘FOOD: Bigger than the Plate‘ exhibition at the V&A in 2019 and Rob Shorter from Doughnut Economics Action Lab (DEAL), who aim to help create 21st century economies that are regenerative and distributive by design, so that they can meet the needs of all people within the means of the living planet.

In the context of the exhibition, we will explore how the arts can help facilitate important conversations about climate change and the future of our planet.
