Grandmotherhood (uncountable) / Бабинство (непреброимо) баба [baba] - grandmother 
Laurenz visiting baba Vasa We are 7 years old again. It is July and we are sent to our grandparents’ place in the countryside to spend the summer vacation with them. Our grandmother tells us long stories and lets us have breakfast for dinner. Grandmotherhood. Even if you have never been a mother, you somehow organically become a grandmother when you grow old. In Bulgaria, you can call any elderly woman grandma - баба [baba]. Any old woman could be your granny. Grandmotherhood (uncountable) is an homage to your grandmother, to your friends’ grandmother, to the elderly woman who sits in front of her house, to the one who slowly walks home with her shopping trolley. This show is about the Bulgarian baba, who runs an art space in the basement of her house in the company of her donkey Marko. Laurenz invited 14 artists and cultural practitioners to contribute to the show by sharing a recipe for a dish, drink, or even a cocktail, that reminds them of their grandmother, the grandmother across the street, or the grandmother they wished they had. All 14 recipes are prepared in baba Vasa’s old kitchen, served at the opening of the exhibition and shared with visitors and people from the neighbourhood in Shabla. The actual recipes are presented in the exhibition space - grandma Vasa’s cellar - in the language in which they were originally written, with an English and Bulgarian translation. “Baba Vasa’s Cellar” doesn’t try to be something it’s not, and doesn’t pretend to be of any importance. The smallest space in a small provincial town in a small country searches for its public in the first place among the local people, speaks in dialect, works with tiny budget, improvises and enjoys nature.* The exhibition Grandmotherhood (uncountable) brings together 14 grandmothers from more than 10 different cultures, chops cabbage, makes strawberry jam and reflects on hospitality, roots, traditions and flavours. What brings comfort to the soul? Where do memories live? * Baba Vasa’s Cellar Manifesto, 2012 
In memory of grandma Vasa and all the wonderful grandmas who are no longer with us. Shabla, Bulgaria July, 2022 List of participating artists and cultural practitioners: Maziar Afrassiabi, Suzanne Bernhardt, Katya Buchatska, Niklas Heiss, Christine Hohenbüchler, Marine Kaiser, Mariana Lanari, Lone Haugaard Madsen, Vasilka Maneva, Bruno Mokross, Ivan Moudov, Ananya Tantuu, Takeshi Yoshida, Anna Zvyagintseva Baba Vasa’s Cellar: Lazar Lyutakov,
