Short summary
This paper examines artisanal and industrial baking practices to develop the notion of affinitive practice and insurgent space – practices through which affinities can be developed resulting in spaces with the radical potential to challenge the spatial logic of neo-liberal capitalism. It argues that if agri-capitalism seeks an automated and disembodied food system, than affinities through embodied experiences and practices within food production can challenge this hegemonic trope.
