On 8 November, a lecture performance with Stefanie Wenner and Anne Juren will take place inside the Fantasmical Anatomy Lesson space as a “frame in the frame” proposing another form of acknowledgment and discourse on the body and it its corporality.
Something becomes something only through something. That’s how one might summarise the history of symbiotic development. It always takes agents to combine so as to generate something new. Stefanie Wenner brings a fermentation starter to Vienna and, adding fungi and yeasts, makes sourdough with Anne Juren in order to bake toads together with the audience. Toads are a symbol of the female gender and thus a leavening agent of reproduction in the iconology of folk belief. We tell stories about desiring the toad, follow the process of symbiotic union of the ferment and eat sandwiches together.
The public is invited to join the discussion following the presentation.

She explores the physis, the sensory system, kinaesthesia and sensuality by challenging the boundaries between the private and the public. Anne Juren has been a Feldenkrais® Practitioner since 2013.
