Urban Food: Munich

Transformations of a cultural region – an Alpine Portrait

The production, processing and distribution of food, as well as its consumption and disposal, have for a long time defined the relationship between city and countryside, and in turn the territory. Conversely, gastronomy and patterns of consumption are heavily influenced by processes of urbanisation. It is here that one can see the influence of the city on the food system and vice versa. 

Food is understoodd as an indicator for the entire cultural region of Munich at Urban Food. In this territory one can identify several transformations. A current preference for organic food has, for example, led to Bavaria becoming one of Europe’s largest producers of organic vegetables in recent years. At the same time, there new models of distribution of this food are being developed online, linking producers directly with their customers. 

Bavarian ski slopes are, on the other hand, suffering greatly from the consequences of climate change: could one imagine a new form of food tourism in Bavaria as an alternative? In Bavaria twice as much meat is consumed on average as is recommended by the EU. The onset of the trend towards vegetarianism begs the question whether livestock agriculture will have the necessary space to support itself in the future.  

In this year’s elective course, which takes the form of a single intensive week in Munich and Zurich, we shall be making a portrait of Munich in the form of an analytical group exercise that will be translated into a ‘Visual Reader.’ It is then possible to take an additional intensive week and investigate the topic further with a partly written piece of work. Both weeks are accompanied by modules in GIS and film. 

 

THIS COURSE IS ALREADY FULLY BOOKED
