Eat Me book
The work of today’s social practice artists was initiated by artists who came of age in the turbulent conditions of the 1960s and 1970s. Embracing viewer participation, it is perhaps not surprising that much of this work has incorporated the production, presentation, and consumption of food. This chapter considers some of the history of twentieth-century art that incorporated food to challenge modernist artistic conventions and surveys some of today’s social practice artists who use food to address pressing social and political issues.
