Episode 10 — Growing Resilience                 

Marta Kwiczała

Episode Transcript

The episode is a slow meditation on bread and the community of home bread bakers that emerged during the Covid-19 pandemic. A story about bread in three acts: a cross-pollination of an interview, a workshop, and a feast; it discusses the abundance which springs from social relationships within the food production systems. What are resilience and interdependence, and how are they embedded in collectivity? What is the place of a community inside of a commodity chain? How does a group enable greater productive capacities? The episode tries to answer these questions through the lens of the common practice of bread baking.

Using food as a departure point, she looks at it as an indispensable attribute of culture, a connector, necessity, and waste. She examines rituals and interactions, food production processes and their ecology, food as an artistic medium and a tool for communication.
