Haraszti Zsolt – Walls
Performance, 2015, at Mediawave Festival, Wall exhibition
A few days before the action, a door frame with a painted stylized wall was erected on which these texts were added in Hungarian and English:
“A wall means self-closure and/or exclusion. This country would be far more livable if the walls were destroyed. This doorway will be build up with bread and dripping. On May 2015 at 19:30, if you are fed up with walls, come and help break them down: Eat a slice with us!“
After the artist laid down slices of bread with pork fat, the public helped “eat down” the wall.

Bread of 250 kilo
Bread of Pannonian Basin – 2015, aug.20
The huge bread was made by 5 bakers from different countries neighboring Hungary, where major Hungarian minority lives. Diószegi László, master baker from Saint George guided the process He also made several attempts in the past to bake huge breads.
The bread was baked with the occasion of Hungarian national day in Szolnok, Hungary. The ingredients were also brought from different part of the Pannonian Basin. The baked bread was sanctified and it was distributed among the celebrants. Another bread of similar size and composition was sent in the morning in Transylvania, Romania, with the occasion of “Cluj Hungarian Days”. It took about six and a half hours at 430 degrees Celsius to bake the bread. Therefore a thick burned crust was formed, which after a few minutes of cooling it was removed with a specially crafted scraper.

Eat my heart out
Sejla Kameric – Eat my heart outPublic project, Manciano, Italy
16 March 2002
Text taken from the artists website:
“Dedicated to the memory of my father who was killed in
Sarajevo on the 16th March, 1993.
An exhibition / public art project was opened on 16 March 2002 in the small town of Manciano, Italy. In the streets and in the main square, Manciano residents set up tables on which were served local wine and culinary specialties. In addition to all this food, visitors could also try heart-shaped rolls that were prepared by a local bakery according to my instructions. The rolls were served on napkins that were printed with photographs taken in Sarajevo between 1992 and 1995 – these images were taken from the documentary film, “Do you remember Sarajevo.” That day, over food and drink, with mixed feelings of happiness and sadness, we spoke of love and war, life and death; and we remembered Sarajevo. Photographs documenting this work are still displayed in the bakeries of Manciano.”
