In this workshop at Genspace in Gowanus, we will work with simple DIY tools to extract and identify EDCs using liquid samples from local waterways and the grocery store. We will be focusing specifically on estrogenic compounds that mimic estrogen (a sex hormone).
Wicket Leaks exhibition at Flux Factory: Using the lenses of food and sports, Wicket Leeks showcases cooks, athletes, researchers, artists, coaches, and makers to help investigate the unsavory histories of nationalist, religious, and corporate colonialism in a palatable way, while not sugar-coating its effects, in order to help us better digest our present and cook up a healthier future.
This workshop will use citizen science to detect and extract hormone-mimicking compounds (endocrine disruptors), followed by a hands-on molecular gastronomy cooking class focusing on corn. This workshop requires no prior scientific or cooking experience and is open to anyone interested in how politics, industrial agriculture, and body-autonomy intersect.
