Food, Autumn 2016
The Food issue, Autumn 2016 from TANK Magazine
Food glorious food. From Instagram to street food, from Michelin stars to celebrity chefs, food is like a contemporary religion. In this issue we unpick our aesthetic preoccupations with eating: A.S. Hamrah dissects the semiotics of chefs on TV, Timothy Morton locates desire and consumption, Bee Wilson looks at the future of food, and Maria Dimitrova traces narratives of comfort in food films. We also publish rarely-seen photographs by the great master, Nobuyoshi Araki, from his series Shokuji (The Banquet).
