Even since her early days with Paper Tiger Television, Shu Lea Cheang has been working to disrupt the corporate control expanding out from our suburbs to public broadcast and the web. But it seems that the effects of gentrification extend as far as our very crops, genetically modifying staple foods, with little regard for its ecological effects.
That’s why, in conjunction with Furtherfield’s Shu Lea Cheang & Mark Amerika exhibition, opening to the public on Saturday, August 31, the networking pioneer will be hosting Seeds Underground Party to raise awareness about the potential impact of the European Union’s plans to enforce strict new seed growing regulations.
