Futurefarmers (Amy Franceschini and Lode Vranken)

Futurefarmers is an international constellation of artists, activists, researchers, farmers and architects who work together to propose alternatives to the social, political and environmental organisation of space. Founded in 1995, Futurefarmers use various media to deconstruct systems, to visualise and understand their intrinsic logics, and to offer more sustainable alternatives. These include food systems, public transportation, and education. Amy Franceschini is the founder of Futurefarmers. She received her BFA from San Francisco State University in Photography and her MFA from Stanford University. Lode Vranken received his master’s in a UN Course on Human Settlements and Architectural Philosophy from the KU Leuven, Belgium. Amy Franceschini and Lode Vranken will be staying in Digermulen for several periods spanning from October 2018 to September 2019.
