HORTICULTURAL APPROPRIATION: WHY HORTICULTURE NEEDS DECOLONISING
Claire Ratinon & Sam Ayre
Rough Trade Editions x Garden Museum series
Horticultural Appropriation is a conversation between an organic food grower and an artist about the possibility and necessity of bringing a decolonial lens to the practice of horticulture. Taking place within West Dean Art College and Gardens, the exchange explores how attempts to decolonise collections and spaces currently happening in arts and cultural institutions might inform the interrogation of the colonial history at the heart of Britain’s gardens and gardening.
