Landscape

Our cultural landscape has changed dramatically with the industrialisation of agriculture. Small-scale
family farm structures, which are idealised and still present in many memories, are in contradiction to today's reality. The modern agricultural landscape is often perceived as a loss that has spatial and ecological deficits. At the same time, new technologies enable the targeted modification of plants to make them more resistant and efficient through molecular precision breeding. How does cultural landscape develop and how is it shaped by man through agriculture? How do we want to deal with the crops? How do we whish the agricultural and cultural landscape of the future to be? What values are important to us in dealing with bioeconomic changes?

In June and July 2019, we conducted two workshops on the topic of cultural landscape at AG Pfiffelbach, which were conceptualised by Stefan Schwabe and Jannis Hülsen.
