In exhibitions, performances, concerts and readings, the cultural program of the Asia-Pacific Weeks examines the central theme of food as a basic need and as a form of culture in Europe and the Asia-Pacific region. Artists address the current and future significance of nutrition, well-being and health in the context of ecology, economics and technology. In doing so, they will highlight different cultures of growing and cooking food and different forms of food enjoyment, such as communal meals and feasts. The Haus der Kulturen der Welt presents its own multi-part program, with Floating Food and Meridian | Urban, and is also coordinating the program contributions of Aedes Architekturforum e.V. “Water – Curse or Blessing!?”, HAU “Leaving the comfort zone” and “Singing Garden - Japan im RADIALSYSTEM V”.
