Can artistic methods be used to critically engage with present day behaviours around eating and consumption? TM:MPFP is an artistic speculation on food practices in relation to health, politics, culture and society. Food-biopolitics questions how the agency of food relates to genes, cell fragments, proteins, enzymes, bacteria and fungi and in a larger context to contemporary politics. GaraGara explores ideas related to food-biopolitics on a local and international scale.
