The Center for Genomic Gastronomy is an artist-led think tank launched in 2010 by Cathrine Kramer (NO) and Zack Denfeld (US) that examines the biotechnologies and biodiversity of human food systems.
Their mission is to map food controversies, prototype alternative culinary futures and imagine a more just, biodiverse & beautiful food system.
The Center presents research about the organisms and environments manipulated by human food cultures in the form of public lectures, research publications, meals and exhibitions. They have collaborated with scientists, chefs, hackers and farmers in Europe, Asia, and North America. The Center’s work has been published in We Make Money Not Art, Science, Nature and Gastronomica and exhibited at the World Health Organization, Jeu de Paume, Kew Gardens, Science Gallery Dublin and others.
