In this exhibition the Ackerschaft takes interested people out into the fields to give them an impression of harvesting and post-harvesting a vegetable crop.

In addition, visitors learn how farmers from Liechtenstein deal with food loss in the field. Moving on from the field to the school garden: the GemüseAckerdemie, a hands-on, all-year educational programme from Germany, has arrived in Liechtenstein. Letters from schoolgoers, a vegetable quiz and other activities help bring the GemüseAckerdemie to life.


The Ackerschaft association
The Ackerschaft sets out to get people enthusiastic about organic gardening in Liechtenstein. The aim is to strengthen respect for food in society. In this context, the field is a tool for creating new places of encounter for social and ecological engagement and education. The flagship is the creation of the GemüseAckerdemie, an educational programme from Germany that seeks to make school gardens flourish again. The association is supported by the Swiss section of the GemüseAckerdemie.


Project space 'Parliament of Plants'
17 July 2020–17 January 2021

As part of the exhibition Parliament of Plants, the admission-free 'Seitenlichtsaal' is conceived as a changing, growing "project space". It links the immediate outside world with questions of art and will enablemeetings between a wide range of scientific and artistic-poetic approaches to and perspectives on the plant kingdom.

A production of Kunstmuseum Liechtenstein, curated by Christiane Meyer-Stoll with Annett Höland, co-curator of the project space.
