Publisher's description: Company is part of a long-term art project by Myvillages investigating the collective endeavor of "picking days," during which from the 1800s to the 1950s working-class Londoners went to the Kent countryside in late summer to harvest fruit and make beverages. The study of this 150-year migration reveals complex social currency, histories and politics of access to the countryside, food production, everyday culture and current interest in communing. Following the production cycles through text and numerous historical as well as contemporary photographs, the authors remind us that rural and urban conditions are inherently connected in multiple ways. Myvillages is a pan-national artist group founded in 2003 by Kathrin Bohm, Wapke Feenstra and Antje Schiffers. Its work addresses the evolving relationship between the rural and the urban and different forms of production, preconceptions and power relationships through long-term projects with a focus on the local.
