250,000 FAMILIES CAMPAIGN – The existence of flavor and taste
by Stephen Sherwood, Ana Deaconu, and Myriam Paredes
The experience of the Campaign aligns with Deleuze and Guattari for whom being depends on human-material relations that embrace context, material and people and involves an assemblage of extensive-intensive capacities. Change in food is born in the constitution of embodiments, enabled through common (and not-so-common) practice — what we summarize through the metaphor of existence. The boundaries of space are not drawn just by legal documents or the scriptures of a formalized institution, but more so they are inscribed through the “memory” of practice. In this sense, we argue that the Campaign’s influence is largely bound by the socio-material and biological potentials of flavor and taste.
