Discuss radical movements and ideas around land and food in this open session of our resident’s reading group.


Initiated by our UK associate artist Agnes Cameron and international artist-in-residence Åsa Sonjasdotter, The Agrarianism and Revolution Reading Group has been meeting weekly in the Delfina library since the start of our autumn Politics of Food season.

Bringing together season’s residents, the group has been reading a discussing an evolving constellation of texts – spanning wide histories, geographies and ideologies – about and produced by movements that have sought to challenge extractive relationships to the land.

In this first public meeting of the group, those who have been involved in the group to date will read selected extracts from the texts studied so far and engage in an open discussion on the texts, the learnings of the group, its future trajectory.

A light spread of Armenian food, prepared by Agnes Cameron and her co-residents, will be available for guests to help themselves to from 19:00, with the reading group session commencing at 19:30.


This event is part of the public programme of Delfina Foundation’s fifth season of the Politics of Food, in partnership with Gaia Art Foundation and with additional support from a range of individuals and partners.
