Diana Yeh was interviewed by TRT World, Turkey’s English-language television broadcaster, for a special edition of Showcase, its flagship arts and culture programme, on the role of food in art. Diana discussed how artists use food as a powerful medium to engage audiences in a range of contemporary social and political concerns – from undocumented migration to practices of global consumption, labour and belonging. In particular she spoke about Mad for Real’s performance Transfiguration(2007, pictured above), which commemorated the deaths of 58 would-be migrants who suffocated in a container lorry carrying crates of tomatoes at Dover in 2000 when trying to enter Britain without the necessary papers.
