In the post-war period of the 1950s, the North American diet was transformed by the strategic promotion of abundance. The existential debate of what constituted a better lifestyle within the political antagonism of “Soviet values” versus “Western values” of this era were represented most fiercely in the kitchen, and by extension to food to support it. Popular home magazines which were directed towards housewives, such as “Better Homes and Gardens,” advanced a message of excess, specifically towards food. This collage series “Post-War Eating Habits” takes a satirical lens at the past while simultaneously portending to a wasteful present.
