Čechmánková s Beloved Baking deliberates on our relationship to bread. It remains an integral part of our diet, but no longer holds the same real and symbolic value it had in the past as modern Western diets have become more diverse. Exotic groceries are availabe at any time, yet our immune systems act up and sabotage the perceived plentifulness. Instead of being a basic aliment, bread has become a lifestyle object, an acttivity and form of entertainment to be shared on social networks, assertings itself as part of our very own personal representational reportoire.
