LandRusH –Ventures into global agriculture is an artistic exploration of the social and environmental impact of agriculture around the world.
Frauke Huber and Uwe H. Martin have been documenting the social and environmental consequences of global agriculture since 2007. Using a slow journalism approach they build close relationships with farmers, ranchers and fishermen; and interview policy makers, activists and scientists. Their projects have grown organically, chapter by chapter, in a constant cycle of research, production, and presentation. This open process allows their work to surface in ever-new contexts, gradually building bridges from magazine publications and documentary films, linear web documentaries, and interactive apps to spatial installations at art institutions.
The multi-channel installations take the viewer on an immersive journey through the landscapes and situations of modern-day agriculture, feature intimate stories of diverse stakeholders and provide an insight into complex scientific, political, legal and philosophic ideas. These narrative vignettes lead the viewers to consider multiple positions at once and ask questions rather than guide them along a finished story.
