The future of food

This project was part of DDW 2023

Next Nature presents Spacefarming: the future of food at the Evoluon. The exhibition explores how we can grow our food differently in the future, on Earth, as well as in space.

How to feed 10 billion people in 2050?

The number of people on Earth is growing rapidly and is expected to increase to some 10 billion by 2050. This means that more food will be needed than we can produce today. Where will this food come from? And how will it be made? A hamburger of cultured meat, milk from a robot cow, or potatoes from space. Things you may associate with a distant future, but farmers, scientists, entrepreneurs, artists and designers are already developing innovative ways to turn this into reality. Spacefarming explores the future of food and agriculture. Welcome to the world of the space farmer.
