You are what you eat! Food is not only a basic need, it is deeply intertwined with most aspects of our lives—as individuals and communities. Foam Magazine #63: FOOD! – The Nourishing Issue looks at what we are made of, focusing on the ways food drives us apart, brings us together and moves us further—all at the same time.
Food fuels us, heals us and brings people together. Yet there is another side to food, which is more political and complex than it appears. Nourishment, ritual, sustainability, economy, labour, culture, ecology, community, exploitation, identity, politics: The collection of portfolios included in this issue are a testament to the variety of visual strategies addressing a few of such matters.
Next to 16 visual portfolios, Foam presents an interview by Siddhartha Mitter with Anna-Alix Koffi on her work and the newly opened art space SOMETHING in Abidjan, Ivory Coast; a thoughtfully put together selection of Algerian photobooks in the bookshelf section by Awel Haouati; an essay on illegal labour in the food industry by Gustavo Duch; an account by Iroquois scholar Atlanta Grant on Indigenous ideas around food waste and recycling—and much much more.
