Michael Schmidt, Lebensmittel

Between the years 2006 to 2010, Michael Schmidt has traveled the European continent and photographed the production, processing, packaging and presentation of food. After five years of planning and realization of his monumental essay with the presentation in the museum Morsbroich and the accompanying publication will be unveiled: 177 images from the daily life of the agricultural and food industry, which is not only an important economic sector, but indirectly also the political and social self-understanding of the population reflects. Field workers, farms, fish farms, bakeries, packaged meats and by the food industry trimmed landscape – it is an intermediate realm that Schmidt shines through with his painfully realistic look.

The exhibition will travel to Innsbruck (Taxispalais, June 16 – August 26, 2012) and Berlin (Martin-Gropius-Bau, January 12 – April 1, 2013)
