    Starter Cultures documents the invisible work that non-human agents (microbes, bacteria, yeast and fungi) perform in the food industry.

    Starter Cultures documents the invisible work that non-human agents (microbes, bacteria, yeast and fungi) perform in the food industry. The project moves us to a small integrated manufacturing plant, where a change in the facilities triggers a strike among the microbes responsible for a large part of the production process. The aim is to propose use artistic practice and neo-materialist theories to rethink the fields of work and production, not as places of exploitation and domination, but as platforms from which it is possible to question the radical separation between nature and culture that has defined our Modernity, and propose alternatives to the current development model.
