Die Anthropozän-küche : Curd Rice, Bienenstich and a Pinch of Phosphorus - Around the World in
about this item
Do we have the right recipes for the future world?
Science meets comics: Twelve illustrators from different cultural backgrounds take you on a journey through the continents and, with their subjectively told and individually illustrated stories, open up a fascinating view on the multitude of eating habits and food cultures around the world. Not only becomes man’s variable use and management of the available resources obvious but also its effects on the global element cycles. Phosphorus with its core importance for all things living plays a central role here.
Both content and design of the comic are influenced by the advent of a new geological epoch – the Anthropocene, the Age of Man. In our global actions we increasingly leave marks that change our planet forever. And the kitchen is the place where these connections show up on an individual scale: Just like the persons depicted in the book every one of us is both user and client of diverse production chains and thus helps to shape the world we live in.
