In the next LASERZURICH EVENT 2 artists, 2 scientists and 1 curator participate in a discussion about the future of food for consumers in relation to a possible 4th Industrial revolution. This panel presents a critical trans-discourse presentation and discussion about sustainable agriculture and explores issues like cultural exchange and food production, new approaches to protein, plant cell cultures, alternatives like algae, and genetic editing or New Breeding Plant Techniques. The discussion traces the effects of Food 4.0 on biodiversity; sustainability; nutrition; the healthy condition of our microbiome and our soil; climate adaptation and food sovereignty solutions. The values of organic farming and better land use are well known but with Food 4.0, will old relationships between deforestation, agrochemical formulators and fertilizer manufacturers, grain traders and plant breeders, grocery retailers and tractor manufacturers change?
