Agriculture and Food

New permanent exhibition: Where our food will come from.

In 2050 about 9,7 billion people will be living on this planet according to a forecast by the United Nations. A new permanent exhibition will connect the future topic agriculture and food with our historic collection. Original exhibits, models and dioramas are supposed to convey the facts; demonstrations, media stations and games will help to make the complex relationships easier to understand and put a spotlight on social aspects. Five subjects - from "abundance and lack", plant production, machines and livestock production to "idyll and reality" are meant to stimulate the thinking: Are the agricultural methods of production and our own eating habits right concerning health, environmental aspects and the nutrition of a growing world population?
