APPLE. AN INTRODUCTION.
(OVER AND OVER AGAIN)
The project initiated by Antje Majewski and Paweł Freisler focuses on apples as the case study of the issue of biodiversity under threat. It attempts to reveal the mechanisms behind the process of genetic reduction of this fruit, a task, which requires making sense of the complex relationships between global food production and the development of technology, as well as science, and the cultural norms that operate within the framework of the capitalist world-economy. These issues resonate through the exhibition, in the dialogue among the works by Antje Majewski, Paweł Freisler, Jimmie Durham, Agnieszka Polska, and Piotr Życieński. The project involves an exhibition, the planting old varieties of apple trees in the city area and a series of educational workshops.
