We start the new year by exploring our complex and glorious relationship to Food with writer and Great British Bake Off finalist, Ruby Tandoh, plus, the former Young Poet Laureate for London, Selina Nwulu; and other important voices. We cover food fads, in relation to class and body image; we analyse the language and labels we hear around food, and we ask whether politicising food is all too much. We profile one of Britain's most exciting young visual artists, Larry Achiampong, who has exhibited at London's Tate Britain / Modern, Fort Worth Contemporary Arts in Texas and is currently showing at the 57th Venice Biennale. Finally, we speak to the feminist print collective, See Red Women's Workshop, founded in 1974. We sit down with two original members of this collective to hear more about their new book and the significance of their work for second-wave feminism in the UK. Stance Podcast covers arts, culture and current affairs.
