Moti Roti

Founded 1991, London

“Set up in 1991 by Keith Khan and Ali Zaidi, Moti Roti is a London based, artist led organisation, celebrating diversity and pushing the boundaries of artistic and cultural discourse. The name Moti Roti, hindi/urdu words meaning ‘fat bread’ is an ironic titling that has a resonance with those who recognise either the language or the food. Although the artists straddle 3 or more cultures (Trinidad, Pakistan, India), they are not interested in the polarised and mythical ‘east/west’ divide, but more about making work which speaks to many different people about complexities & contradictions of the current times.”

Taken from the catalogue for A Place Called Home’ (South Africa, 2004).
