Fermentage in der dritten Etage

vorschlag:hammer

As part of the online durational festival »It’s about time«.

 

Fermentation is the transformation of food by microorganisms such as bacteria, molds or yeasts. These microorganisms transform sugars into other substances. They turn white cabbage into sauerkraut, carrots and radishes into pickles, apple juice into vinegar and milk into yogurt. In an – only seemingly – chaotic process, something is transformed and made edible and durable. A magical process. In a cozy evening, vorschlag:hammer and a group of interested people want to pickle sauerkraut and other vegetables together in a VHS atmosphere in the Ballhaus Ost. You will cut cabbage and vegetables, knead the cabbage, fill it into jars. Maybe there will be some input on sauerkraut. Maybe there are some inputs on lactobacteria or yeast. Maybe there are inputs on messy processes. Maybe there will be some eating and drinking together.

And then it takes time. The evening seeps into the memories. The jars stand as an installation in Ballhaus Ost and microorganisms do what they do. In parallel, algorithmic processes go to work on a digital ferment. Sound recordings of the evening are roughly and finely chopped, events are mixed and transformed, in the end they are stirred and seasoned. After six weeks, the time has come and the participants can pick up their own preserving jar and a sonic ferment of the experience at Ballhaus Ost. Then it becomes clear: What has stuck? Which flavors resonate? Which sentences have taken on a new flavor? What was different in the memory? What has now have a sour aftertaste?

 

Free admission. No previous experience required, but welcome. Seating capacity: 15 participants
