This beautifully illustrated hardback publication covers three major bodies of work by artists Lucy + Jorge Orta: Food - Water - Life. Through these universal topics, the reader will get a better picture of how Lucy + Jorge create their artworks and their role as creative 'agents' for social awareness and change.

Since founding Studio Orta in 1992, the duo have created an extensive body of work that addresses universal concerns of community, shelter, migration, and sustainable development. Beyond merely tackling these issues artistically, their work suggests solutions by modeling fresh approaches to social dilemmas. From reclaiming discarded food for town-wide dinner celebrations to staging an international exhibition in Antarctica, their often-playful projects incorporate elements of design, fashion, art, and architecture, which they combine with performances, multimedia events, and public debates.

Featuring hundreds of photographs of their artworks, Food Water Life includes texts by highly regarded art historians and curators: Zoë Ryan, Ellen Lupton, Judith Hoos Fox, Ginger Gregg Duggan and an interview with Hou Hanru provides a deeper insight into the artists’ processes and motivations.

Lo daba por perdido, lo pedí el 21 de febrero y llegó hoy!! No tenía numero de seguimiento y por lo mismo es más fácil que se retrase. Afortunadamente llegó y es muy bonito!!!

This Antarctica World Passport is so beautiful and it conveys a powerful message. I am ready to be a citizen of the world. I vow to protect Mother Earth, Father Sky, people, and animals and I will fight for global justice.
