With a holistic approach, this touring exhibition and artistic collective research project aims at exploring the multiple stories of Asian cocoa and chocolate from a historical, anthropological, cultural, ecological and socio-economic perspective, including its medical and gastronomic facets.

Combining artistic expression and knowledge production, it attempts to highlight the complexities and challenges at stake behind chocolate bars.

A touring exhibition

Each exhibition will be site specific thanks to a collaboration with local artists, farmers, scholars, students and chocolate makers.
