Teodora Jeremić, Kamilė Krasauskaitė “Lessons From the Yeast”, “Labour of Love”, lecture-performance

3 December 2021, 18:00


For every species “living” means “collaborating”. Even if we are not aware of it, daily we need help and assistance from others, both human and non-human, which makes collaboration the foundation of our mundane lives. 

The lecture-performance “Labour of love” is an invisible investment that tells the story of connection, patience and dedication with an unpredictable ending. Through her research-based presentation and by using sourdough and the processes of fermentation as a change catalyst, Kamilė Krasauskaitė will open up the question of building new structures and connections with others, and present what cohabiting and collaboration between two strangers looks like in a microbial universe. Do opposites really attract? Are they capable of building strange, unique, and solid structures together?

The “Lessons from the yeast” zine presents a collection of thoughts, experiences, and ideas, as well as notes on past and futures of collaborating, cohabiting, coliving, coworking, constructing, connection, communication, contradictions, and correspondences.

The event was supported by ifa in the framework of Teodora Jeremić's residency at Slavs and Tatars.
