Our consumption habits, as the cause of factory farming, will persist for a long time and now are more prevalent than ever. Not only does it control our daily lives, but it also contributes to animal suffering and the destruction of our environment. The installation Meatlove showcases the production of canned meat through a looping animation, serving as a powerful visual representation. The cartoonish style puts a friendly facade over the heavy subject matter, which is shaken up by the chaotic interactive sound installation.

Please note: Limited capacity, registration required – in addition to a valid ticket, you need a (free) ticket reservation for the respective event in advance. Reservations for Deep Space 8K events must be scanned on-site no later than 15min before the programme starts.
