Taking its lead from the Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe (Arts and Crafts Museum) in Hamburg, the Kunstgewerbemuseum of Staatliche Museen zu Berlin is now also being converted into an artistic-scientific testing ground. In this experimental environment, novel theoretical and practical models for the future of our food will be devised and discussed. The exhibition idea from Hamburg is not only enlarged in the capital through the addition of new works, but the entire conception of the subject is being substantially elaborated upon. The ideas and visions introduced in the second volume were developed by designers, artists, and scientists who were invited to Berlin in order to define, in situ, their own personal understanding of sourcing and consuming foods.
