We invite you to view two exhibition catalogues of THE SUPERMARKET MUSEUM Web Document, which were created thanks to the cooperation of artists and permaculture educators of the Agro-Perma-Lab Foundation and four European organizations.
Supermarket Museum and Edible City Warsaw were created as part of the cooperation of two entities: Agro-Perma-Lab Foundation and Biennale Warszawa. We propose two different reflections on how we can become independent from the big food industry and develop and support urban agriculture and horticulture, local food initiatives and farmers who appreciate the principles of regeneration and ecology. Little visions matter. Intertwining our creative imaginations with each other has the potential to redirect the notion of “growth” to intangible, non-destructive and non-profit solutions. Let’s use it.

Food is one of the basic needs of every human being. The coming food crisis is not a fiction. The dominant model of industrial agriculture today creates dangerously fragile societies and ecosystems. It focuses on eliminating farmers, globalizing rural areas and transforming them into global food factories. However, the cumulative negative effects of its impact, leading to the depletion of natural resources, remain disturbingly unnoticed by a large part of society.
We need solutions that will enable us to produce and enjoy healthier eating, living in harmony with nature and its rhythm, and healing the planet so that it can heal us. The COVID-19 pandemic, mass migrations and the climate crisis show like never before that we must look for new solutions and also use those that already exist. Worldwide, new initiatives operating on the fringes of the mainstream or in niche areas are paving the way for the alignment of new, more sensitive and environmentally conscious social DNA into our planet’s biosphere.
