Spring 2019

Adapting [verb]
Adjusting to new conditions.
Making something suitable for a new use.

The food system is broken. Seismic systemic change is an inevitability waiting to happen. Confronting this issue Adapting, the fourth programme in Delfina Foundation’s The Politics of Food series, curated by Dani Burrows, will investigate ideas responding to the changing environment of food production.

A new exhibition, Accumulation by Dispossession by Asunción Molinos Gordo, forms part of this programme. The exhibition provides a rich visual journey through some of the most stark contradictions and inequalities of the current global food system using what Asun terms “economic objects” to reveal  the mechanisms shaping it.

Also as part of Adapting, Marta Fernández Calvo, Luigi Coppola, Vivien Sansour, Josefin Vargö, and Nick Laessing will undertake research residencies at Delfina Foundation. Exploring how cultural legacies infuse food production both in the field and the kitchen, their areas of research range from translating recipes, to heirloom seed saving, and DIY urban hydroponic cultivation. The residences will culminate in a series of events taking place in June.

The Politics of Food: Adapting programme is supported by Acción Cultural Española and Arts Council England.
