Hong Kong journalist Emily Rauhala speaks about the anticonsumerist philosophy of the “freegans” or “dumpster divers.” These individuals collect the tremendous quantities of still usable food and other goods that can be found in the trash containers of our cities, either to distribute to the needy or for their own personal use. Rauhala worked with Lorenzo Morales, a Bogotá-based journalist, to create an online multimedia project called “Creative Resistance and the Politics of Food,” which explores food waste and recovery on the streets of New York City.
Freegans is part of a series of lectures and films presented in conjunction with the exhibition Actions: What You Can Do With the City (2008), which explores public actions in urban environments and their impact on contemporary society.
