Who, what and why we eat, or not, are no longer just matters of personal preference; it is no longer a neutral topic of small talk as nowadays food is deeply marked by ethics, politics, economy and health issues. What is it going to look like in the future? Is the posthuman food chain the best solution? What are the issues reflected in food art and what are our blind spots?
Lecture Joanne Jesman, interview Laura Mudde, interviewee Chloe Rutzerfeld, moderation Lucas Evers.
"Living tissues and living issues" is a series of three evenings presented by the Open Wet Lab. that looks at how technology shapes new relations between organisms and in turn how technology is shaped by those organisms. From an artistic, academic and sociopolitical perspective we look at issues of hybridity, performativity and food as these seemingly unrelated topics have a very strong influence on how we perceive the Other and each other in modern society.
"Living tissues and living issues" is part of The Future of Art and Science Collaborations, a joint project of Waag Society and Stichting Toekomstbeeld der Techniek, supported by the Mondriaanfund and Doen.
