UCL European Institute


Larisa Faber, Collaborating with the European Literary Map of London

Larisa Faber

Writer, director and actress Larisa Faber will also be collaborating with UCL European Institute and the UCL Faculty of Arts and Humanities in the summer term. 

Larisa will be working to develop an irreverently multivocal text about the politics of seasonal vegetables – which will feature on the European Literary Map of London as the first Luxembourgish entry.    

Commenting on her upcoming work with UCL, Larisa Faber said: 

I'm delighted to be able to work with UCL European Institute, the Faculty of Arts & Humanities and their European Literary Map of London project for the first-ever Luxembourgish entry: a text about asparagus, seasonal migrant veg pickers and food politics - from the point of view of the asparagus. In true Luxembourg fashion the text will be polyphonic and in true personal fashion it'll be madcap. 
This collaboration will also allow me to connect with UCL staff, as well as presenting an exciting opportunity for me to lead a performance-based workshop for UCL students. The immersion in academic study, writing and exchange is a space I've long hoped to be able to return to and the timing could not be more perfect. After all, asparagus season is beckoning. Who will be picking your "white gold" this spring?”
