Food Revolution 5.0
Design for Tomorrow’s Society

18.05.2018 to 30.09.2018

How will we eat in the future? And what will we eat, given the dwindling resources of our growth-driven society? Globalized food production is having a decisive impact on climate change and the choices we make about how and what to eat help to shape the world’s food system. Eating is no longer a private matter, but a highly significant political act.

The Kunstgewerbemuseum will become an artistic and scientific laboratory to showcase new conceptual and practical models for the future of food and living. The Food Revolution 5.0 exhibition has invited over 30 designers to present their latest concepts, ideas, and designs for making this transformation to the food system a reality. There are statements intended to serve as suggestions for best practice in the here and now, and speculative projects that throw open questions, illustrate possible future scenarios – all against the backdrop of the proposition: ‘What would happen if…?’ The Kulturforum’s piazza will be converted into an edible garden where visitors can relax or even help to harvest food.

The exhibition will include works by Martí Guixe, Ton Matton, Chloé Rutzerveld, Werner Aisslinger, Julia Lohmann, Marije Vogelzang, Maurizio Montalti, Austin Stewart, Johanna Schmeer, Silke Riechert, and Carolin Schulze.

An exhibition by the Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe Hamburg in cooperation with the Kunstgewerbemuseum – Staatliche Museen zu Berlin. Curator: Dr. Claudia Banz
