The intervention Wohnzimmer Farm envisions a sustainable city which self-sufficiently produces food. We consider urban farming as our tool to reduce pressure on the world’s productive land and to assure long-term food security. For us the Great Transformation needs to happen from bottom up and not from top down. Hence, our vision starts from the scratch – the first step is to sensitize people on the very local level about sustainable food consumption, production and the global supply in order to support a higher awareness and recognition for the urgent need for transformation towards sustainability. For this reason, the intervention Wohnzimmer Farm is bringing the topic of food security and sustainability into the everyday context of a living room. The installation, located at the south-east entrance of Tempelhof airfield, invites people to learn and practice possibilities to grow food at home, e.g. in their living rooms or balconies. For the development and performance of the intervention, we collaborate with local actors of already existing garden projects in the neighborhood, from allotment gardens to urban gardening initiatives, in order to develop DIY-tool-kits for composting, water filtration, and food production. The actual space of Wohnzimmer Farm is a container of a local cultural initiative, which we transform into the Wohnzimmer Farm. The focus lies on everyday suitability and motivation to put the more theoretical ideas into practice – we offer an interactive installation accessible for everyone and practical workshops.
