Kulturkollektionen is a new project as part of Biologigaragen, with the goal of spreading knowledge and physical strains of live food and other useful microorganisms to people in an open-source, participatory method. we collect, experiment with, and disseminate strains and co-cultures which are useful for food production. we want to make these strains and fermentation available and accessible to the general public, and develop a culture of ‘culturing’ to get people more in touch with their food and its production. while some cultured products are available in stores, often at a high markup, we want to give people the ability to make their own and different foods, without having to have specialised knowledge before starting. we want to make fermentation a part of daily kitchen life and food again, and remove the barriers of specialisation, equipment and access, to make sure everyone has the ability to culture their own foods. we gather as many different biological cultures as we can get our hands on, so we can experiment with them and share them with each other and our communities. by holding workshops and demonstrations, we hope to teach each other how to make better and more diverse cultures in the kitchen.
we also develop unique and easily replicable methods for the culturing and fermentation of foods, using easily acquired or built equipment, which can be reproduced in labs and kitchens everywhere. we open source our methods and equipment, while also open sourcing the cultures used for food production.
These open nights are free or you can buy a membership and have access to all our events and the lab 24/7 here https://
