Agnieszka Pokrywka has a long-standing interest in fermentation and we talk to her about Ferment Lab in Helsinki, and its spin-off Ferment Radio.
Fermentation has grown from a technique for making beer, cheese and pickles into a much larger area of cultural discussion that covers a wide range of interlocking topics.
In this episode of Common Practice we discuss feminist and queer theories of fermentation and the long-standing role of Sandor Katz in the fermentation revivalist movement.
In the best tradition of “launching new things” every copy of this podcast comes with a FREE PODCAST!
Beyond a certain point talking about a podcast becomes pointless without an opportunity to listen to it. We have therefore kept our conversation to a short introduction before playing Aga’s favourite episode of Ferment Radio so far: episode 10 featuring a conversation with Stephanie Maroney.
We last spoke with Agnieszka Pokrywka in Episode 21 of Meanwhile in an Abandoned Warehouse about a project she co-founded called Temporary that looked to expand the idea of a self-directed venue into discussions of interaction and responsibility.
