Carnecopia; hope, greed and cultured meat

David Lisser is an artist whose recent works imagine the future of cultured meat and the role of technology in food. Here he will discuss the potential, the problems, and the utter weirdness of this fledgling industry.

I think a lot about the future and I make sculptures and installations that explore our hopes and fears for tomorrow.

This Lunchtime Talk will be broadcast live on Watershed's YouTube channel

David will talk us through his slight fixation on the world of cultured meat, and why he thinks we need to creatively challenge its trajectory.

In his 2017 project, he was hosted and supported by Pervasive Media Studio to produce The Cleanmeat Revolution – an imagined museum-style retrospective of C21st meat production. Combining artefacts from the CleanMeat industry, items of social history, and a corrupted video lecture, this exhibition charted the rise and fall of lab-grown meat in the 21st Century.  Curators notes provided social, cultural and economic context for the twists and turns of this fascinating time.

David will also discuss how this project and how his other work has developed since then, and will raise questions about the kind of culinary future we want.

This talk is part of Season for Change. A nationwide campaign and festival of artistic work celebrating the environment and inspiring urgent action on climate change. Led by Julie’s Bicycle and Artsadmin and supported by Arts Council England and the Paul Hamlyn Foundation, Season is co-curated with partners like Watershed across the cultural sector.

Join us on Fri 12th June, 13:00-14:00 for the talk and to take part in the discussion afterwards.
