LASER Zurich is part of the world wide series.
In the next LASERZURICH EVENT 2 artists and 2 scientists and 2 curators participate in a discussion about the future of food for consumers in relation to a possible 4th Industrial Revolution. This Panel hopes to foster a critical trans-discourse presentation about the following potentials: genetic editing or New Breeding Plant Techniques; food manufactured from plant cell cultures and automated greenhouses. The discussion traces the effects of Food 4.0 on biodiversity; sustainability; nutrition; the condition of our microbiome and our soil; climate adaptation and food sovereignty solutions. The value of organic farming and better land use are well known but with Food 4.0, the historic division between deforestation, agrochemical formulators and fertilizer manufacturers, grain traders and plant breeders, and grocery retailers and tractor manufacturers may no longer apply.
