Ein Dialog zwischen Rohstoffen und Lebensmitteln

Xinyi Tan

Xinyi Tans Projekt EIN DIALOG ZWISCHEN ROHSTOFFEN UND LEBENSMITTELN stellt Fragen, die unser Verhältnis zu Lebensmitteln betreffen. Haben wir es vor dem Hintergrund der alltäglichen Verfügbarkeit von Lebensmitteln verlernt, uns nach den mit ihnen verbundenen Problemen zu fragen? Ist es uns egal, woher unsere verarbeiteten Lebensmittel kommen? Wie groß ist der Verlust von Nährstoffen im Verarbeitungsprozess? Xinyi Tan beginnt einen Dialog über Rohstoffe und die aus ihnen entstehenden Produkte und will mit ihrem Projekt zum Nachdenken anregen.
