Our first guided tour will take us to the location of the episode Countryside Reloaded.
Featuring an abandoned supermarket that once used to be the central point of rural life, the small village of Genterovci will be the center of our explorations guided by Vienna-based design studio Mischer'Traxler and food researcher and writer Klemen Košir.
Rather than highlighting romantic notions of rural life, the episode reveals the shocking reality of today's countryside and the increasing level of its automatization, digitalization and specialization – all because of growing demands for efficiency in agriculture and food industry.
The surroundings of Genterovci temporarily turns into a special kind of discovery path, a four kilometer long surrealistic tour of learning about food production and consumption processes, experienced through walking, foraging and eating food.
The tour will start and end at the abandoned supermarket that in the past featured as the model for food consumption. During BIO, the supermarket becomes a temporary space for social exchange conveyed by the experience of food.
