“Development is intrinsic to life and when we affirm reduction, we simply mean maintaining welfare at a certain optimum level. Care for collective welfare of some does not need to bring injustice to others and Radical Abundance can be an answer to frenzied consumption.”

Adelina Cimochowicz, a visual artist and activist, turns the space in front of Elektrownia Gallery into a campsite accommodating a mobile kitchen and experimental garden to create a center for testing alternative ways of consumption and redestribution of goods. The programme includes two sessions of vegetarian cooking inspired by the seminal book Kosowska Kuchnia Jarska, a screening of the film Dominion and camera-mediated actions revolving around the issue of sustainable and ethical consumption.

The Week of Radical Abundance will end with an open feast at the common table, offering unconventional vegetarian food.
