Belgian artist Koen Vanmechelen and Zimbabwean activist Chido Govera talk about the Planetary Community Chicken Project at Design Indaba 2017
July 14, 2017
Earlier this year, Koen was invited to the Design Indaba festival to inspire the audience with his art-science-community projects.
The chicken is the biggest immigrant in the world, camels have two immune systems, and mushrooms are the next big thing in food security. At first glance, these ideas are unrelated and zany. But for two Design Indaba 2017 Conference speakers, the chicken, the camel and mushroom form the basis of a larger conversation around empowerment through diversity, art and science.
