Guided TOUR 2: YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT?

Gabriela Steiner-Scharfetter, VIENNA DESIGN WEEK

27.9.–5.10.2019

On foot, at the table, it's all about the future of consumption. Along with the increase in urbanization and the related changes in living conditions, the area of food production and consumption is being confronted with a number of  challenges. On their culinary stroll through the Festival Headquarters, participants of this tour will receive a literal taste of (speculative) food designs: Five projects from the format Urban Food & Design will be served up that address lost regional narratives relating to specific dishes focusing on society’s
perception of food apart from the blocked norm, position fungal biomass as an alternative food source of the future, take up the political dimension of food with the aid of a silverware series, and transfer the expressed vision of the city of Beestenbuurt, where humans and animals live together synergistically and as equals, to the Festival Headquarters of the VIENNA DESIGN WEEK.
