â€œHunger, a man-made objectâ€ reflects on the financial aspect of food trade, dealing with its possible impact on food insecurity. During her staying at Delfina Foundation as part of the residency program â€œThe Politics of Foodâ€ Molinos studied David Harveyâ€™s concept Accumulation by dispossession which elaborates on how the centralization of wealth and power in the hands of a few is caused by dispossessing the public of their wealth or land.
This exhibition will display a series of economic objects, carefully crafted, through which to understand some of the reasons why almost 1000 million people are deprived from regular access to food.
