Meat from the lab or the 3D printer? Vegetable protein sources from algae or lupines? Vegetables that have been genetically modified with biotechnologies for specific properties? What will the future of food look like in the light of all these possibilities and developments? As alternatives to conventional animal and vegetable protein sources, grocery stores are increasingly offering products with ingredients based on new raw material sources and production processes.
Speculative Futures Berlin explores visionary approaches that use design and foresight to imagine potential futures by showcasing creative projects, far out research, prototypes, and tangible strategies for change. We host speakers – topics range from science, society, sustainability to name a few – to talk about their work and methods. Initiated in 2017 by Ellery Studio, the Berlin chapter is now the largest interest group for speculative design and foresight in Europe.
This event is part of the [bio'nd] project on the occasion of the Science Year 2020|21 for bioeconomy, which is being realized at the Museum für Naturkunde Berlin in cooperation with the IZT - Institute for Futures Studies and Technology Assessment and Ellery Studio.
