The Forbidden Journey: Food and Conflict in Challenging Times

05/10/2022 - 08/10/2022

Admission: Admission: Free, no pre-booking required

An international collective of artists shine a light on the 10 million people currently experiencing food insecurity around the world. Exhibited works probe the relationships between food and conflict, and aim to explore the notion of eating amidst social and political turmoil globally.

The Forbidden Journey is presented by the UK-based non-profit art initiative Food of War, a Multidisciplinary Art Collective dedicated to explore the relationship between food and conflict through art.

Featuring paintings, sculptures, installations and performances, The Forbidden Journey explores questions about food availability, access and consumption in regions impacted by conflict. Included within the exhibition are works that explore projects that have focussed on Chernobyl in Ukraine, the Colombian Amazon; and also the United Kingdom.

The retrospective brings together a diverse selection of contemporary artists whose works aim to highlight how food is impacted by issues such as nuclear threat, bee and insect decline, and food insecurity as a shared experience. The Forbidden Journey includes contributions by artists Marina Abramović and Raul Marroquín as well as works by other Food of War members.
