Do you wanna visit an exhibition? Then go to the German Hygiene Museum. There is the exhibition about Future Food. The exhibition “Food for the World of Tomorrow” confronts you with one of the greatest challenges of our time. In three chapters you follow the path of our food from the stable or field to the table. It deals with topics such as global distributive justice, vegetarian food or the power of the big food companies. And of course it is about food as an experience full of enjoyment, which creates identity and community.
