9789490322564: Company: Movements, Deals and Drinks

Company is part of a long-term art project by Myvillages investigating the
collective endeavor of picking days, during which from the 1800s to the 1950s
working-class Londoners went to the Kent countryside in late summer to harvest
fruit and make beverages. The study of this 150-year migration reveals complex
social currency, histories and politics of access to the countryside, food production,
everyday culture and current interest in communing. Following the production
cycles through text and numerous historical as well as contemporary photographs,
the authors remind us that rural and urban conditions are inherently connected
in multiple ways. Myvillages is a pan-national artist group founded in 2003
by Kathrin Böhm, Wapke Feenstra and Antje Schiffers. Its work addresses the
evolving relationship between the rural and the urban and different forms of
production, preconceptions and power relationships through long-term projects
with a focus on the local.
