An exhibition exploring the inequalities in the global food system.


Delfina Foundation is proud to present the first UK solo exhibition of Asunción Molinos Gordo, Accumulation by Dispossession, curated by Dani Burrows.

The exhibition takes its title from the work of the eminent Marxist Professor David Harvey. In his 2003 book, The New Imperialism, Harvey introduces the concept ‘accumulation by dispossession’ to describe the increasing feature of global capitalism to concentrate wealth and power in the hands of the few through the process of dispossession. During her 2014 residency at Delfina Foundation, Molinos related this concept to her on-going research into the food system, the outcome of which is this exhibition.

Accumulation by Dispossession maps a route through different aspects of the global food system, addressing issues of privatisation, financialisation, the management and manipulation of crisis, as well as redistribution. Using a variety of media, including drawings, videos, sculptures, photographs and textiles, the works are a combination of hand-made, machine assembled and computerised, reflecting the different inputs and influences within the food system itself.

Accumulation by Dispossession is part of Delfina Foundation’s latest iteration of the thematic programme The Politics of Food, which will run from 1 April – 23 June 2019. Acknowledging that the food system is broken and seismic systemic change is an inevitability, the fourth iteration of The Politics of Food, subtitled Adapting, will explore responses to the changing environment of food production. Alongside the exhibition by Asunción Molinos Gordo, the programme will feature residencies, talks, and workshops. click here for more details.
