Research output: Non-textual formExhibition


Imagine going to a restaurant in 2050. What will be on your plate - the good old schnitzel, a vegetable burger or meat that has been grown in the laboratory? Or will your plate remain empty because a world population that has grown to ten billion people can simply no longer be fed?

The Future Food. Eating for the world of tomorrow confronts you with one of the greatest challenges of our time. In three chapters, you follow the path of our food from the stable or field to the table. It deals with issues such as global equity, vegetarian nutrition or the power of the big food companies. And of course it's about eating as an experience full of enjoyment that creates identity and community.

The exhibition shows that the future of world nutrition will depend on political decisions, but also on personal decisions. In addition to museum exhibits, Future Food presents interactive media, video installations, scientific prototypes and artistic positions. The exhibition conveys useful factual knowledge in clear wall graphics.

Historical documents and objects tell of ideas that were far ahead of their time and of those that failed due to the laws of the market and the habits of consumers. On your tour of a greenhouse, a logistics center, a supermarket and at a banquet table, you can ask yourself the question:
Will WE do better in the future?
