Recipe: Breaking Bread, Fish Curry

Breaking Bread is a multidisciplinary art space that uses food to bring people together and spark cultural dialogue. Through a food-centred approach and practice, Breaking Bread attempts to create an accessible and shared common ground, uniting literary criticism, sound, performance and visual art to create a community of questioning minds, with an aim of building an alternative cultural infrastructure. As a space that engages in experiments in food, sound, visual and performance art, the group aims to address, engage with discussions around cultural, knowledge-generating, historic and power-politic related questions.
