LACTISM

7.6. 21:00 Performance

An ongoing project Lactism by Tamara Moyzes and Shlomi Yaffe revolves around the central concepts of human bonding, sociality, and human-environmental interactions. Informed by the ideas of deep ecology and ecofeminism, the project is concerned with social aspects of environmentalism and egalitarian social imaginary wherein the concept of justice extends also to non-humans.

Lactism is a new monotheistic female-centric religion and simultaneously a model of human relationality and social organisation, which envisions a society free of gender, geopolitical, religious, and cultural divides. Its ideational foundation comprises the Mother Goddess LACTERIA, mycelium, consecrated milk derived from mycelia, and the concept of Milk kinship and creativity to connect people with others, with themselves, that which opens up the imagination and brings hope.

Tamara Moyzes and Shlomi Yaffe’s utopian ideas embody a proposal for balm and healing social and ecological injustices. In this 21st century, the world is still being led by men, and to our deep regret, we have seen in the most recent events the cruel results of male violence against women, young children, and adults we seem to be in need of this now more than ever.
