BIOTOPIA FESTIVAL Plakat EAT Web

May 26, 2019, Nymphenburg Palace, Munich, Germany
With exhibition "MEAT THE FUTURE" on May 25, 2019

Go to Festival Page

How does what we eat shape the planet? What will the food of the future look like? How can we feed the world without destroying fragile ecosystems?

The festival will be a mouth-watering and thought-provoking exploration of eating in all its myriad dimensions, bringing together leading scientists, artists, designers, chefs, industry experts, innovators and the public to explore the food of the future in the stunning surroundings of Schloss Nymphenburg, offering a tantalizing variety of events suitable for all ages.

By approaching the topic from a variety of viewpoints, BIOTOPIA aims at initiating an inspiring, positively irritating interdisciplinary dialogue that fosters curiosity, captures people's imagination, contributes fresh perspectives, facilitates an empathetic understanding and sparks controversial discussion about the future of nutrition, agriculture, food and taste.

EAT marks the beginning of a series of annual festivals focused on behaviours, activities and processes like sense, sleep or communicate, leading up to the opening of the new museum currently planned for 2025.

As a foretaste of BIOTOPIA - Naturkundemuseum Bayern, the BIOTOPIA Lab in the Botanical Garden Munich will open its doors to all curious visitors who want to experience science first hand - with free admission. Flying over Berchtesgaden with the interactive VR-bird flight simulator Birdly, cultivating a mini-biotope in a glass or exploring microorganisms in their own water sample - the BIOTOPIA Lab offers on 350 m2 exhibition space and workshop area with its own experimental kitchen a variety of possibilities to discover science up close in a dialogue-oriented atmosphere and to spontaneously become a researcher yourself.

More information and press release (German)

We proudly announce that BIOTOPIA – Naturkundemuseum Bayern is joining the Global Coalition for Biodiversity,  as the first official member from Germany. The Global Coalition calls for strong mobilisation of all national parks, research centers, science and natural history museums, botanic gardens, zoos, aquariums, and beyond to unite forces and make their voices heard about the nature crisis ahead of the UN Biodiversity Conference (COP15) in 2021. After the Royal Belgian Institute of Natural Sciences, BIOTOPIA also becomes the 2nd Natural History Museum worldwide to join the Coalition.

In June 2020, the Museum Mensch und Natur celebrated its 30th anniversary - unfortunately, due to the Corona Pandemic, however, without a celebration or other public event. Since the museum has become very popular with many visitors over the past 30 years, this anniversary is now being honored with a launch in Google Arts & Culture.

Use the search function to select the Museum Mensch und Natur and get the opportunity to explore selected stories and objects. In addition, you can even visit our museum virtually via various museum views. Take your time to look at some of the most popular objects and maybe you will feel like visiting the museum live again.

A provocative call for the transformation of science museums into "idea colliders" that spark creative collaborations and connections. Gorman focuses on the dialogue between scientists and artists, designers, policymakers, and the public and considers the questions, ideas and experiences of each visitor as an important resource for a new kind of museum experience. The book can be ordered online in English and provides exciting insights into the planned BIOTOPIA – Naturkundemuseum Bayern in Munich and giving forward-looking models of science engagement around the world.
