Venezuela in chaos

Lucía Pizzani

Cesta Básica | Oferta y Demanda

Cesta Básica portrays daily groceries, which have been identified by the government as essential for daily existence. Paradoxically, the list of daily necessities is equal to the sum of 18 minimum wage monthly incomes. They are presented here as untouchable offers, photograms that are a shadow of the object itself.

In the video Oferta y Demanda women fight over food at the supermarkets where they spend hours queuing every day. The work is recorded with a smartphone, because filming is officially prohibited in the long queues.
