Snack Syndicate (Astrid Lorange and Andrew Brooks) is a critical art collective that produces installations, video and sound work, texts and talks. They have exhibited/presented at Artspace, the MCA, the TarraWarra Biennial, the Biennale of Sydney, Liquid Architecture, Alaska Projects and the NOW now.

Astrid Lorange has a background in poetry and small-press publishing; Andrew Brooks has a background in media art. Together,Snack Syndicate make work about the complex ways that bodies are regulated, mediated and disciplined in contemporary life – and about the complex ways that bodies can beunderstood and inhabited differently. Recent work has looked at bodies and their regulation/mediation via pharmacopornographic technologies (Little Pharma, Artspace Ideas Platform, 2016) and psychoanalysis (Cold Cuts, Alaska Projects, 2017).
