​• The war on food and food of war is both current and as old as human existence.

• Amidst bitter wars, nations, families, and kin find themselves torn apart. Yet, in the face of such devastation, Food of War envisions a path to healing, through the sharing of culinary traditions and experiences.

• We propose preparing Food of War for people to experience.

• The movement delves into the direct impact of armed conflicts worldwide on our culinary habits, illuminating the intricate relationship between violence and food, and the mutual influence they exert on each other.

• There is no substitute for direct contact to experience local food and culture, which inevitably leaves traces of conflict on the palate.

• Food has become a highly charged political object/subject due to its capacity to make sense and connections, effectively dissolving preconceived distinctions between nature and culture, the individual and the collective, peace and war, body and mind.

• When you consume something from a certain culture, you take a bite of that culture's history.


• We are not attempting to overcome the open wounds among factions by cooking and eating together, but this could be a large-scale formal reconciliation process between conflicting parties.


• Food of War is a project in development, built around the idea of coexistence through sharing food and tables.


• Food of War is all about abundance and generosity, ensuring it never runs out.


• If not religion or politics, at least rice, potatoes, pizzas, meat, corn, and so on are what human beings unanimously share.


• We are a movement with the primary goal of grouping and showcasing works of art that depict the connection between war and food.

• Any medium is accepted, as long as it explores the aforementioned connection.

• We live in a world where personal ties to producers and processors no longer exist. Our production practices have changed. The foods we eat are the result of human manipulation, often with unintended consequences.


•The politics of food have become implicated in the very notion of food itself, defining what food is and what it should be.

• Peace Culture: Embracing a culture of peace, Food of War asserts that breaking bread together fosters understanding and contributes to a world harmonised through shared culinary experiences.

• Make Food, Not War: Our movement ardently believes in the transformative power of food to bridge divides. We encourage individuals to channel their energy into creating food instead of engaging in conflict – promoting unity through culinary endeavours.

• Dignity Has No Nationality: Upholding the belief that dignity is universal, Food of War celebrates cultural diversity while emphasising our shared humanity beyond national boundaries.


•Through food, we affirm the intrinsic dignity of every individual.

• We are steadfast in our commitment to sustainable practices in food production and consumption. We advocate for initiatives that prioritise environmental responsibility, ensuring our gastronomic pursuits do not compromise the well-being of future generations.

• We blend art and culinary creativity into immersive experiences, redefining food as both sustenance and art. Through concepts like Immersive Environments and Gastronomy, we push boundaries, challenging norms with Gastroperformances, Edible Graffiti, and thought-provoking Gastroessays.


•If we are what we eat, then we all are Food of War.
