Imagining and doing agro-food futures otherwise: Exploring the pig city experiment in the foodscape of Denmark

Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskrift/Konferencebidrag i tidsskrift /Bidrag til avisTidsskriftartikelForskningpeer review

In this paper we investigate Pig City; a project that proposes to combine pig-, tomato- and energy
production. We argue that Pig City was an experiment challenging the established trajectory of the
Danish pig production industry. Utilizing sensibilities from science and technology studies and actor-network theory we follow Pig City and the heterogeneous world making practices that took place in
the context of this project. Through our narrative of the Pig City experiment we draw attention to the
ways in which different visions of the future of agro-food are inscribed materially and discursively. We
discuss recent agro-food scholarship in terms of opening up space for thinking and acting otherwise with regards to agro-food futures. Finally, we reflect on the political implications of this understanding.
