Amy Franceschini is the founder of Futurefarmers, an international working group founded in San Francisco in 1995. They are artists, architects, computer programmers, donkeys, graphic designers, farmers, writers and anthropologists with a common interest in creating work that calls into question the social, political and economic frameworks in the contexts in which they work. A through line of their practices is an interest in the reorganization of agricultural systems. They engage issues of food sovereignty, farmers’ rights and the commons through long term engagements which manifest as temporary workshops, derives and performative processes that have led to policy change and permanent commons. Through an associative lecture Franceschini is connecting the research and actions of Futurefarmers’ work in public space.
