How will we eat tomorrow?

3 performative shared meals


Each event explores the future of food through a different lens and aims to amplify social interactions and transform thoughts into food, into giving and sharing. When we eat, we take in the world and bring life into our bodies. Eating, like breathing, is a process within a system. Through eating we are connected to the world in a constant exchange of vital energy. Food is an essential part of life.

Out-of-the ordinary artists meet passionate chefs to experiment together and share openly. Among them are Stella Geppert (artist and professor for for experimental sculpture, spatial art, body and space concepts at Burg Giebenichsein University of Art and Design Halle), the Finnish artist Nina Backman (The Silence Project) and Vadim Hendelder (OTTO) (one of the most thrilling Berlin young chefs). 

Topics include sociotop, body and space, empathy, rituals, multispecies and symbiosis, hybridization, zero carbon society, recipes for the future, concepts beyond individual.

Each event takes place in the re:future Lab FOOD Laboratory. You will experience a participative performance accompanied by lectures and a DIY-workshop to provide utmost inspiration and knowledge transfer.

Limited to 12 participants who share a meal, experience and learn.

2 days, on a saturday/sunday

Shared meal and beverage pairing, keynote lecture, DIY Workshop, a future-box and documentation material.

The full programme and dates will be announced shortly.
