FEAST: Spaces for Eating, Online Now


FEAST: Spaces for Eating is the final edition in a series of online publications exploring the larger framework of Setting the Table. The edition investigates the architecture, environments and landscapes in which food is prepared, purchased, shared and consumed. Contributors include artists Antonia Low, Elisabeth Molin, Jonathan Trayte, Kaye Winwood, and Fairland Collective; writers Chris Fite-Wassilak, Augusto Corrieri and Zara Worth amongst others. Exploring the ongoing construction of ‘Spaces for Eating’ as expressions of cultural value, tradition, and fashion, the contributing authors reflect on our continually changing relationship to the cultural history of their diverse forms.

As the final edition in the series devised by Laura Mansfield and Elisa Oliver, ‘Spaces for Eating’ marks the end of the existing format of FEAST. Under the continued editorship of Laura Mansfield and a number of new collaborators, guest editors and contributors, FEAST will advance with a changed format. Working in partnership with The Postgraduate Arts and Humanities Centre at Manchester Metropolitan University and an advisory board of arts professionals and academics, a reformatted FEAST will launch over the coming summer with an edition on the theme of ‘Consuming Children’.
