Pakghor – The Social Kitchen was part of lumbung member Britto Arts Trust’s contribution to documenta fifteen. It was based on an organic palan—a Bengali kitchen garden—which feeds the pak ghor, the family kitchen-cum-living room.

Britto Arts Trust is an artist-run non-profit collective based in Dhaka. Britto attempts to understand Bangladesh’s socio-political upheaval by exploring missing histories, cultures, and communities and collaborating with various partners.

One of their many points of focus are the geopolitical issues facing rural and border locations in Bangladesh and their loss of land rights, environment, and culture. In Kassel, Britto created a vivid interconnected landscape devoted to food politics, displacement, and culture.
