Film Screening: Fermented


Avery Art Center, Center for Film, Electronic Arts and Music  The Experimental Humanities Food Cluster, Bard EATS, and the Environmental and Urban Studies Program invite you to a screening of Fermented, a feature-length documentary by author and chef Edward Lee, who goes on a journey to understand how the ancient process of fermentation is used in modern cuisine both at home and abroad. The culinary world has labeled fermentation as the hottest food trend at the moment, and this film stands as a point of entry into the deep, dark world of beautiful rot, and what it means to humankind.

Join us to “look deeper, get dirty, and find the beauty in rot.” Engaged Liberal Arts and Science professor Gabriel Perron will also be offering a sampling of fermented foods, from his Food Microbiology course.

Diasporic Futurities

Ignacio G. Galán, PhD, Term Assistant Professor, Barnard and Columbia Colleges
Olin, Room 204 
Ignacio G. Galán’s work considers architecture’s role in the articulation of society through projects developed in different formats and media. His lecture will present a number of past and ongoing endeavors—ranging from scholarship in the history of architecture to exhibitions and design proposals—with a focus on the architectures of housing and the spaces of residence characteristic of a time defined by mobility and transit. He will discuss how architecture mediates processes of dissolution, fragmentation, and disembedding of social relations, as well as the search for different forms of binding, stabilization, and belonging.
