SUPERMARKET PATH Artists’ manifesto
The supermarket food system and its social, cultural, economic and ecological implications are destructive in many ways. The system’s underlying values of profit-making do not respect local communities and cultural and biological diversity. The supermarkets go to a great length to hide the information about the origin and way of production of what they sell. They cause a hyper version of disconnection of where the products come from.
What is more, the supermarket model destroys small farms and companies, monopolises local food systems. and does not respect workers’ dignity. The long-chain industrial food production, distribution, and waste issues damage ecologies and health. What is more, the supermarket system falsifies the inevitability of technological ways of producing food and makes people fulfil their spiritual needs via consumption.
The phenomena of greenwashing and sensory marketing only accelerate the problems of the supermarket culture. We know other systems, alternatives do exist. The supermarket culture has been with us only for few decades and can be changed as fast as it appeared.
