Feral Trade Café, an art exhibition that is also a working cafe, opens at HTTP Gallery for 8 weeks over Summer 2009.
Serving food and drink traded over social networks, Feral Trade Café by Kate Rich (AU) provides a convivial setting from which to contemplate broader changes to our climate and economies, where conventional supply chains (for food delivery and cultural funding) could go belly up.
Feral Trade Café is the first element of Furtherfield.org's three-year Media Art Ecologies programme, which aims to provide opportunities for critical debate, exchange and participation in emerging ecological media art practices, and the theoretical, political and social contexts they engage. The café will be host to events, initiated by Furtherfield.org and others, examining issues related to the Feral Trade and Media Art Ecologies projects, including a Media Art Ecologies networking day.
