During the exhibition In Search of the Pluriverse at Het Nieuwe Instituut (April-August 2022), artist, cook and weaver Aslı Hatipoğlu handed out sachets of sourdough culture, micro-organisms with which you can make dough for bread. To help all potential home-bakers getting started, but also because baking bread together is more fun and energy efficient, we organised two baking days in late spring and early summer.
On a rainy day in June sourdough enthousiasts gather around the communal oven ‘De Stoker’ in Rotterdam neighbourhood Bospolder-Tussendijken. We talk, exchange, listen, learn, reflect and bake. Conclusion: bread is fundamental. Join us for 35 minutes of ‘bread time stories’. About microbes, time, the energy transition, community, poverty and sustainability.
In this podcast English and Dutch are both used. This edition came about as a collaboration between the Travelling Academy and Bakkerij De Eenvoud.
