Welcome to this fictional, maybe-not-that-fictional, supermarket deli fridge! Since the 1980s, marketing, advertising, design and logos have become
completely central to consumer capitalism. Entering a supermarket is to enter a bewildering dense core of consumerist images. Here you will find the fridge full of "Humanely Slaughtered Human
“For the people, by the people, made from people.”
A subversive art installation of a refrigerator full of 100% local & organic human meat!
‘Humane slaughter’ is as much an absurd design paradox for animals as ‘humane execution’ or ‘less-lethal weapons’ are for humans. The contradictions
embodied in these bizarrely mitigated products are reflections of the competing social forces pushing for and against their use.
Humanely Slaughtered Human Meat evokes how the meat and dairy industry are inseparable from the most pressing issues we face today: the climate crisis, infectious and chronic diseases, human exploitation and, of course, non-human exploitation.
This artwork was part of the subversive supermarket stocked with ‘products’ by artists Illustrate Feccia, Doublewhy_Y, Matt Bonner, Hogre, Spelling Mistakes Cost Lives, Proyecto Squatters and Hushidar Mortezaie.
