Froh Ussicht “gift (toxische Geschenke)” (“poison (toxic gifts)”)

Exhibition information:

Poison in agriculture is a much discussed topic. Improving yields with less effort has probably been the main goal ever since people first started farming. So it’s not surprising that in the last century, people did not shy away from the large-scale use of poisons to get the edge over their enemies. The production of larger quantities of food has enabled exponential growth of the world population, with ever fewer people employed in agriculture. If that growth is viewed positively, agrochemicals must obviously be interpreted as a gift.
