“The Future of the World” – a dinner discussion organized on Sunday, June 17th, 7pm, by pisteras3000 (Ana Vogelfang & Rosario Talevi), Valentina Karga (Berlin Urban Farm), and the Dinner Exchange Berlin within the framework of the Große Weltausstellung 2012, a collaboration between the HAU and raumlabor berlin.
As a result of a workshop held during the third week of May together with the “Mediations” seminar, we created an installation whose main element is a large table with the Mappa Mundi, a beautiful drawing done by Matthias Rick (+), on its surface.
The Mappa Mundi is an alternative representation of our planet today with regards to history and future, as well as to the matter of resources.
In this context we invited Dinner Exchange Berlin to organize a dinner with leftover food from markets. Our dinner guests will comprise a combination of people from different disciplines who will discuss the “Future of the World”. Curator and artist Lukas Feireiss will be moderating this event.
We hope to initiate an inspiring discussion evolving around manifold aspects with regards to the future of our world.
