Bread and The Contours of Capitalism
June 23 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
In partnership with The Africa Center and Museum of Food and Drink (MOFAD), join Tunde Wey and Uzodinma Iweala for a virtual discussion about the impact of geopolitics and racial capitalism on food production and consumption on the African continent. Using food as an entry point, this conversation will explore the contours of capitalism and trade around the systemic economic subordination of Africa.
Tunde will also introduce us to his agege bread project. Agege bread is a popular bread sold streetside throughout Lagos. The bread is not only for consumption, it is also art. More importantly, it is a commentary on the volatility of global commodity prices as a result of covid and the Russia Ukraine war. Specifically, a reminder of the uneven distribution of burden caused by these geopolitical events which cause disproportionate harm to The Continent.
