FRUITING BODIES – DIE FRUCHTKÖRPER

27.9.–6.10.2019

Fruit, both exotic and domestic, doesn’t simply taste good, it also exercises a great amount of attraction. For some time now, local super­ markets can hardly be imagined without pine­ apple and melon, kiwi and pomegranate. The ecological footprint created by their transport and consumption in Europe is enor­mous. The project FRUITING BODIES by food designer Alexandra Genis presents a local alternative based on fungus that’s in no way inferior to the attractive appearance of other fruits and vegetables.
