We think that fermentation is not only a technical process but also a social and cultural one — it’s almost political. Fermentation inspires art, literature, poetry, painting. We believe that fermentation connects people, changing our way to interact and develop relationships. In France, when we say fermentation, we immediately think wine; in North America, beer; in India, bread; in Japan, saké… Everywhere, fermentation takes a central role in our cultural life. FAIR magazine explores this fermented world, who makes it — your mom, your friend, an artisan, a neophyte — how, and the way it inspires people. It inspires us!

Twice a year, writers and artists will bring you interviews, stories, pictures, poems, and much more! Our second issue features works by (in alphabetical order):
